There are too many stories to relate from Beyond the Genome 2012, held at Harvard’s New Research Building last week. Many of them are beautifully synthesized in Isaac Kohane’s notes from the meeting (start here and press “Prev” to view talk notes in order). Instead of re-hashing well told tales, I will
We’re in San Francisco for the Ion World 2012 conference. Stop by and say hello! We are also presenting a poster – a Seven Bridges Genomics technical report, comparing variant calling pipelines, as you can see in the image above!

This guy is awesome. He’s coding 3-dimensional shapes with DNA. And substantiates my claim that coding is magic.
John Sheffield explains how the open sharing of data is the next step in the genomics revolution. About John : John Sheffield is co-founder and president of Seven Bridges Genomics, which aims to harness open-source innovation to make genomics analysis accessible, repeatable, and sharable across the scientific community.

Publishing results in peer-reviewed journals is the main currency of academic success today. This Guardian article explains why. It also highlights the shift towards open access publishing that seems to be afoot. Award-winning Cambridge mathematician declares he will no longer publish with or review for Elsevier journals. Wellcome Trust (English equivalent of
Some people are doing what we’re doing in reverse: coding new genomes from scratch. They’re taking out all the natural complexity that our pipelines are built to sort through and are coding “grokkable” genomes that: Read in one direction Are non-overlapping Are as simple as possible Here’s a lovely article about this
