Summary: G-OnRamp provides a user-friendly, web-based platform for collaborative, end-to-end annotation of eukaryotic genomes using UCSC Assembly Hubs and JBrowse/Apollo genome browsers with evidence tracks derived from sequence alignments, ab initio gene predictors, RNASeq data and repeat finders. G-OnRamp can be used to visualize large genomics datasets and to perform collaborative genome annotation projects in both research and educational settings. Availability and implementation: The virtual machine images and tutorials are available on the G-OnRamp web site (http://g-onramp.org/deployments). The source code is available under an Academic Free License version 3.0 through the goeckslab GitHub repository (https://github.com/goeckslab).
