Join us for a live webinar by Appistry’s GATK customer support director, Craig DeLoughery. Craig will review best practices for using the Genome Analysis Toolkit (GATK) for variant calling. The webinar will include details about how the best practices workflow is enhanced by the advanced functionality for NGS introduced last fall with GATK 2.0 and expanded upon in the latest release of the GATK from Appistry.
Attend this webinar to
- Discover the optimal workflow for variant calling
- Determine which GATK tools to use when
- Learn the differences between the GATK’s two variant calling tools
- Hear about the latest additions to the GATK

StampedeCon_2012 is the first national Big Data conference of its kind to take place in centrally located St. Louis, MO. This event aims to connect those who are interested in better understanding and leveraging Big Data and discussing what’s next for this emerging field. A diverse group of attendees will include developers, system architects, executives and many others.
How do you manage the huge volume of sequencing data? How can you interpret the results efficiently? What’s the actionable hypothesis and where can NGS really add value?
Leading sequencing experts from across the pharma industry will be tackling these problems and others that relate to applying NGS in a meaningful way. Expect open and lively discussion, great networking opportunities and a raft of new solutions and ideas to implement on your return.

The ISMB conference series aims at attracting the top research contributions in all areas of computational molecular biology. Typical, but not exclusive, the topics of interest are: Sequence analysis, Evolution and phylogeny, Comparative genomics, Protein structure, Molecular and supramolecular dynamics, Molecular evolution, Gene regulation and transcriptomics, Proteomics, Systems biology, Ontologies, data bases and data integration, Text mining and information extraction, and Human health. The conference also aims to attract participants from related disciplines in order to understand the need that exists for computational approaches in related fields, and to gain from approaches taken in other disciplines that might be appropriate for computational biology.
The free falling cost of whole genome sequencing raises the possibility – some say the inevitability – of applying this revolutionary technology in the clinic. More and more medical geneticists are proposing the idea of a "sequence once, read often" approach to preventive medicine. However, huge challenges spanning the scientific, regulatory, ethical and financial arena's stand in the way of clinical genome sequencing becoming part of mainstream medicine.
TCGC: The Clinical Genome Conference, invites stakeholders from all arenas impacting clinical genomics to share new findings and solutions in advancing the application of clinical genome sequencing.

Sultan Meghji, Appistry's VP of Cloud Applications, will be participating in a panel discussion focused on implementing cloud tools for R&D teams. The event, hosted by PubGet will be held at Mass Bio in Cambridge, MA, on November 16.
Here’s a look into the primary theme of the discussion:
"It's estimated that cloud computing spending will account for 25% of IT expenditure growth in 2012 and nearly a third in 2013. In the life sciences, the amount of data managed by companies doubles about every three months (Bruce Maches, formerly Pfizer, 2011), making the industry prime for adopting secure cloud platforms."
