While the widespread adoption of next-generation sequencing in laboratories around the world is revolutionizing genomic research, scientists remain challenged by the task of handling the wealth of sequencing data.  GTC’s Bioinformatics and Data Management Strategies Workshop is a half-day seminar dedicated to helping users in discussing the issues and developing solutions to these problems.  Bioinformatics experts will present on methods and best practices for data management, analysis and interpretation in a variety of sequencing applications.  Additional topics include optimization of work flow, software utilization and cloud computing.

Speakers for the workshop are:

·         Scott Kahn, Chief Information Officer, Illumina

·         Jacob Farmer, Chief Technology Officer, Cambridge Computer

·         Dongliang Ge, Director, Bioinformatics, Gilead Sciences

·         Chris Dagdigian, Founding Partner and Director of Technology, BioTeam
