I would like to generate a "UCSC genes" track for a genome hosted in the our local UCSC browser. Something like this, with subsections and most data linking to an external url. I'm starting off from a tab delimited annotation file and I would like to end up with all data loaded onto SQL and most data searchable through the browser's search bar.
There is a description on how the example track above was generated, but many of the scripts are no longer in the current ucsc/kent distribution.
Does anyone have some experience with this? It would be great to get a more detailed list of steps on how to generate this type of track. I have generated custom tracks before but all of them were trackhubs or standard bed, bedDetail or wig formats.
