GMOD is the Generic Model Organism Database Toolkit, a collection of software tools for creating and managing genome-scale biological databases. You can use it to create a small laboratory database of genome annotations, or a large web-accessible community database. GMOD tools are in use at FlyBase, WormBase, SGD, BeeBase and many other large and small community databases (see: Genome projects).


The Generic Genome Browser written by Lincoln Stein with collaboration from many member of the community.[1] The project webpage provides some example installations. It is deployed for many Model Organism Databases or MODs as well as disease and process specific databases. See the publication highlighting its design [1].
