NAME

Bio::Graphics::Browser2::Plugin::TrackFinder - Limit list of tracks to those that mention keywords

SYNOPSIS

In the appropriate gbrowse configuration file:

 plugin = SourceTrackFinder

 [SourceTrackFinder:plugin]
 tissue source = brain pancreas kidney
 gender        = male female

 [track1]
 (usual config options)
 tissue source = brain
 gender        = male

 [track2]
 (usual config options)
 tissue source = pancreas
 gender        = female

DESCRIPTION

This plugin activates a panel above the tracks table that allows the user to filter the tracks according to typed keywords. The fields to search are hard-coded to "key", "citation" and "keywords". Simply add a space-delimited "keywords" field to each stanza in order to make it findable by this plugin.

Note that this only affects the display of track names. Tracks that were previously turned on will stay on, but their entries will be invisible in the tracks table. The user can still turn them off by clicking on the individual track's configure or (-) buttons.

OPTIONS

None
