RNA-Seq Conferences Happening This Week


Workshop Location: California State University, Long Beach, CA

Workshop Dates: June 22-26, 2015

The goal of this project is to prepare faculty to guide students as co-investigators in novel genome research, focusing on high-throughput RNA-Seq as a tractable entry to NGS. Several faculty participated in our Working Group Retreat held at CSHL in June 2014 and helped refine the RNA-Seq workflow. The Green Line of DNA Subway, an intuitive browser-based interface, supports RNA-Seq analysis and provides an easy biological “on ramp” to the national supercomputing highway. The NSF Proposal Summary and Narrative provides details about the project rationale and structure. (more…)



Evening Poster Reception
Tuesday, June 23

Welcome to the third annual GTEx Project Community Meeting! The meeting this year will be held in Chicago at the University of Chicago. The meeting will highlight current data sets and types available, what tools are available, and analysis methods used on the data. The relationship of the project to other NIH projects and data sets, such as ENCODE and Cancer projects will be highlighted, and strong emphasis will be placed on showcasing a range of scientific presentations that have used GTEx data. We encourage your participation and submission of abstracts for talks or posters! (more…)

RNA-Seq Boston 2015 will enable scientists to overcome the data bottleneck by applying the most appropriate bioinformatics tools and develop a unified, integrated approach for analysis and interpretation of huge data sets, which in turn can positively impact therapeutic and clinical developments.

This is an opportunity for you to collaborate with other bio-informaticians and biologists to better understand the tools being applied to optimize RNA-Seq data analysis and the application of RNA-Seq in basic research, drug discovery and development. (more…)

The World’s First Genomics Festival

Distributing and gathering genomic information and intelligence has become a crucial requirement for scientists, clinicians, business leaders and consumers. The Festival of Genomics is designed to be a rigorous, fun and transfomational forum for industry, healthcare organizations, academic institutions and vendors. The very best speakers. The best networking opportunities. And a goal that ALL attendees leave armed with assets that make a practical, immediate difference to their research, clinical practice or business. (more…)
