Big Genetics in BC: The American Society for Human Genetics 2016 Meeting
Themes at this year's meeting ranged from the verification, validation, and sharing of data, to the translation of laboratory findings into actionable clinical results.
Accelerating the Detection of Foodborne Bacterial Outbreaks
The speed of diagnosis of foodborne bacterial outbreaks could be improved by a new technique developed by researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Antibiotics Discovered While Sifting Through Human Microbiome
Researchers identify genes in a microbe’s genome that produce antibiotic compounds, then synthesize them without the need for bacterial culture.
A Genome-wide View of Human DNA Viruses
In this study, Duplex sequencing was used to accurately analyse the genome-wide rate of spontaneous mutation of human adenovirus C5 (HAdv5).
Peer Review is in Crisis, But Should be Fixed, Not Abolished
After the time to get the science done, peer review has become the slowest step in the process of sharing studies, and some scientists have had enough.
Rare Immunodeficiency Yields Unexpected Insights
Scientists uncover previously unknown gene mutation revealing the role of a key molecule involved in immune cell development.
Cancer Genetics: Key to Diagnosis, Therapy
When applied judiciously, cancer genetics directs caregivers to the right drug at the right time, while sparing patients of unnecessary or harmful treatments.
Illumina Contributes to ClinVar Database
The contribution includes variants of all classifications, from pathogenic to benign, identified during interpretation of whole genome sequences generated in the CLIA-certified, CAP-accredited Illumina Clinical Services Laboratory.
Agilent Presents Early Career Professor Award to Dr. Roeland Verhaak
JAX professor recognized for the development and implementation of workflows for the analysis of big-data from transcriptomics to next generation sequencing approaches.
Integrated Omics Analysis
Studying multi-omics promises to give a more holistic picture of the organism and its place in its ecosystem, however despite the complexities involved those within the field are optimistic.

OmicSoft Corporation

Whitepaper discussing the technique of aligning next generation sequencing (HTS) data.

OSA is Omicsoft's read aligner designed for high performance alignment of short or long reads to reference libraries (genomes or transcriptomes).

 Key features of OSA:
1. High performance for both single end alignment and paired end alignment. Works on reads with 17-65536 nucleotides.
2. For Illumina reads (17nt or longer), allow any number of mismatches and a single indel in the reads. Can identify and report all available alignments in the genome with specified mismatches/indel.
3. For long reads (e.g. 454 reads or PacificBio reads), allow any number of mismatches and indels in the reads. Use banded Smith-Waterman to find the optimal alignment.
4. Directly align RNA-Seq reads to genome by considering both known and novel exon junctions
5. Directly align fusion reads: reads spliced by two different genes or genomic regions
6. Automatic quality based trimming
7. Automatic adapter trimming
8. Support all common input formats (.fasta; .fastq; .qseq; .sff); directly support .gzip files allowing savings in file space
9. Support multiple threads
