Default Register Now: 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 PacBio 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.
