Early registration ends Saturday!
PhD students and post-docs: This is the last week for abstract submissions to MGED12. Deadline is September 5th. Scholarship monies are still available from the EMERALD grant and the NHGRI for E.U. and American students for travel and registration expenses.
Dear Colleagues -
Our apologies if you received this notice last week, but we're pleased to announce that an additional workshop, GenePattern & IGV, has been added to MGED12, Next-gen sequencing and translational genomics in October.
Presented by members of the Cancer program at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, this tutorial provides an introduction to using the integrative genomics tools GenePattern and the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV).
*GenePattern*, a publicly available utility ( http://genepattern.broadinstitute.org/gp <https://outlook.tgen.org/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://genepattern.broadinstitute.org/gp> ), provides access to a broad array of over 100 computational methods used to analyze genomic data. A web-based interface provides easy access to these methods and allows the creation of analysis pipelines that enable reproducibility and sharing of /in silico /research.
The *Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV)* is a high-performance desktop visualization tool for interactive exploration of large datasets in the context of the genome. The IGV supports integrated visualization of data from multiple sources, including next-generation sequencing and array-based platforms.
To register and/or to submit abstracts, go to www.mgedmeeting.org <https://outlook.tgen.org/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.mgedmeeting.org/> .
See you in Phoenix,
