Hi folks,
I am a PhD student from Amsterdam, almost finishing (I hope).
Happy new year to you all!

I'm a UC Davis PhD student in Peggy Farnham's lab transplanted mid-stream to USC. We're an ENCODE lab investigating cancer epigenomics through ChIP-seq and RNA-seq.

I'm our de-facto bioinformatic pipeline admin and am ecstatic to FINALLY have a fast, new Ubuntu machine running samtools, bowtie, tophat, cufflinks, homer, etc. thanks to this forum. While the process almost drove me insane, YOU GUYS ARE HEROES.

I'll try to contribute what I can in the future. Once I recover from this, I'll try to brave a Galaxy installation with Python 2.7 and report back. Thanks.

Hi everibody,
My name is Arun and I am a biologist and bioinformatician. I'm currently working in the Research division in Xcelris Genomics, India.
We are mainly dealing with NGS analysis, but we've done other projects also.

I think it would be great to have a place for new people to stop in and introduce themselves. I am sure that I am gonna enjoy this ;-).

Hello All.
I'm a product manager for a 'biotech tools' company here in the Bay area. I'm pretty new to the area of NGS (and old enough that I actuallly worked with slab gel sequencing during my Ph.D). I'm here to learn...

Hi everyone,

I have made a few posts here before but hadn't got a chance to say hello. I'm a master student in University of Melbourne, Australia and an intern in VLSCI working on assembly of short reads. Nice to meet you all!

Hi! my name is Ruy, I am a postdoc in Braunschweig recently involved in NGS analysis, mainly Illumina. I have to deal with bacterial populations, genome de novo assembly and transcriptomics. This forum has already been of use to me, so I'm glad to participate

Default Hello from Cape Cod

Hi everybody. I am a postdoc on Cape Cod studying the cell biology of the nucleolus/nucleolinus and the possible relationships of these organelles to the spindle. I'd like to wish everyone good luck with their work. I hope to learn something useful here. Mike

Hi all,

I'm a postdoc, recently new to NGS techs. My training is in host-parasite ecology and evolution.

I am in the process of establishing a host-pathogen model system, using insect cell lines and intracellular pathogens belonging to a derived fungal lineage - Microsporidia.

My intentions are 2-fold:
1) Use RNA-seq to understand the interaction between host and parasite. Pathogen's genome has been published as a draft assembly; host cell genome currently not sequenced. Experimental design yet to be firmly established.

2) Re-sequence the pathogen genome de novo, probably using paired short read library in combination with a mate-pair read library. Probably all using illumina. Eventual aim here is SNP discovery.

I will doubtless revisit this forum with questions as my project unfolds!

Default Profile Genomics, Training & Services

Hi all,

This is Bob Macey and Brian Rowning from Profile Genomics with the Peralta Foundation in Alameda, California. As part of a community college effort we are intending to change lives. Profile Genomics is a new Genomics training and service facility. We were the first to receive the Covaris LE220R for DNA shearing in high throughput, and we are currently receiving contracts from others to shear DNA on this instrument.

The caliber of our students is very high, with students that have degrees from universities across the country and Australia.

The lab is looking to add services that will add value to the Genomics community.

In the expansion of the lab, we anticipate accommodating postdoctoral researchers who would contact us to apply to obtain federal funding which would include both research avenues and novel instructional platforms.

We look forward to talking with anyone who is interested in Genomics training and services.

Best,
Bob & Brian

Hello from San Francisco,

I'm a grad student using RNA-seq, platform Illumina HiSeq, and epicentre's ribo-zero and scriptseq library kits. Glad this forum is here.

Hello, all

I've been a reader here for quite a while and have benefited greatly from your experiences with the tools. I'm a software engineer with a long background in commercial computing, and now starting a second "life" in a computational genomics lab. Most data here is produced with Illumina machines, GA-IIx, HiSeq and MiSeq.

Hi, all. I'm a grad student in bioinformatics in Boston, and I'm currently looking at 3' additions to miRNA with Illumina small RNA data.

Hi all,

I'm very new to DNA sequencing in general and NGS in particular. My background is in Geology and I'm now on a PhD program in Microbial (Meta)genomics. I'll be using Illumina and 454 for the most part. I'm in Finland.

Great community you have here!
