ICGC-TCGA DREAM Somatic Mutation Calling Challenge
Jan 27, 2014 - 5:15 AM - by khoulahan
Introducing the ICGC-TCGA DREAM Somatic Mutation Calling Challenge

We are very excited to announce an international effort to benchmark methods for identifying somatic mutations in cancer genomes from whole-genome sequencing. This message outlines the competition. We encourage all groups to download a set of standard datasets and submit their results. This will be useful to both algorithm-developers, to benchmark their newest techniques, and to data-analysts, to verify their current pipelines are internationally competitive! Details below, and registration at:

SEQstandards and MINSEQE: Minimum Information about a high-throughput SeQuencing Expt
Nov 13, 2012 - 11:20 AM - by Joann
Introduction to the forum: a new standards page at the SEQWiki.

Our new Wiki page hopes to be a quick and easy source of standards guidance from FGED-MINSEQE as well as various other global standards initiatives relevant to forum members with the idea of helping to put things out there sooner than later. The FGED board has chosen SEQanswers as the most appropriate location in the entire webverse to host feedback opportunities on their consensus format for ultra high through put sequencing experiments. The forum is a great place to conduct discussions, and already has been active in exploring terminology issues and more. This thread would be a place to start collecting these discussions, plus feedback, inquiries and input from our forum members and also to refer students, especially, to the new Wiki page material on formal standards guidelines for sequencing and publishing sequence data.

Oxford Nanopore @ ASHG
Nov 07, 2012 - 9:29 AM - by GW_OK
New thread started for ONT discussion as the old one was getting long. Also, GridION spotted in the wild?

So it's not a hollow box...

A call out to all ASHG attendees to please document ONT's announcements and hardware here for the community not attending.

SEQanswers published in Bioinformatics
Mar 14, 2012 - 3:40 AM - by marcowanger

We are excited to tell you the official publication for SEQanswers is online now at Bioinformatics.


(1) Avg response time to a new post in SEQanswers is less than 1 Day. Still decreasing !
(2) #Discussion & #Post per month keep rising !

SEQanswers: An open access community for collaboratively decoding genomes

We have more updated version of the figures, which is even more impressive. We plan to put them into SEQwiki

New Tech at AGBT
Feb 17, 2012 - 1:28 AM - by aeonsim
I thought it might be useful to collate the bits and pieces about new platforms discussed during AGBT (Those that don't already have a thread), for those of us unlucky enough not to attended. Grabbing the info from various tweets listed at:

If any one at AGBT could supply additional information from the talks, that'd be appreciated or any links to blogs covering the tech.


Read Length: 1000bp
Accuray: Phred 70+
Holopolymers: Phred 70+ to 9bp
Sample Prep: < 1min

System is rackable, ~30lbs, Dry Instrument fludics in cartridge. Beta Mid-2012, commercial end of 2012? Real time Variant calling, each base queried 6 times.
