Default Save the Date: SMRT Informatics Developers Conference August 26

Please save the date for a full-day, collaborative conference focused on developing and improving data analysis tools for SMRT Sequencing technology:

SMRT Informatics Developers Conference
August 26, 2015
Gaithersburg, MD – NIST campus - the day prior to the Genome in a Bottle

The goal of the conference is to advance development of analytical tools for PacBio data by enabling in-person brainstorming and idea exchange among software developers and the bioinformatics community. Through facilitation of open discussion and collaboration, the event will nurture development of new and existing open source tools for de novo assembly, genome phasing, structural variations, methylation and Iso-Seq™ analysis.

Keynote speaker:
• Gene Myers, Ph.D., Founding Director, Systems Biology Center, Max Planck Institute

De novo assembly:
• Adam Phillippy, Ph.D., NBACC
• Sergey Koren, Ph.D., NBACC
• Mihai Pop, Ph.D., University of Maryland
• Aleksey Zimin, Ph.D., University of Maryland
• Jason Chin, Ph.D., Pacific Biosciences

Structural Variations:
• Ali Bashir, Ph.D., Mount Sinai School of Medicine
• Adam English, Ph.D., Baylor College of Medicine
• Mark Chaisson, Ph.D., University of Washington (tentative)

Kinetic Data Analysis:
• Shinichi Mori****a, Ph.D., University of Tokyo
• David Alexander, Ph.D., Pacific Biosciences

Isoform Analysis:
• Kin Fai Au, Ph.D., University of Iowa
• Thomas Skelly, MPhil (Cantab), Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer
• Ana Conesa, Ph.D., University of Florida
• David Tse, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley
• Wing Wong, Ph.D., Stanford University

Registration is now open. If you plan to attend, please book your accommodations soon. The Courtyard Marriott at Washingtonian Center has a block of rooms reserved for $154/room including breakfast and transport to/from NIST - availability is limited.
We look forward to seeing you at this exciting event!

We're hoping it will be up by the end of the month, dependent on the NIST registration process. Will keep you posted when the registration is live!
