July was an exciting month for Seven Bridges Software Engineer Boysha Tijanic, who traveled from our Belgrade, Serbia office to give a presentation at ISMB 2014. In his talk, Boysha discussed the importance of transparency and thoroughness when it comes to sharing data and highlighted the complexity of bioinformatic workflows

One opportunity that comes from working in an infant discipline is that of being able to examine and influence its basic tools. You are more likely to fundamentally improve alignment or assembly than you are to improve the foundations of thermodynamics. And given the state of bioinformatics software, it is

Science

Each sequencing technology comes with a unique and unavoidable error profile due to the chemistry, biology, and hardware involved [1,2,3]. If we want avoid analysis artifacts and arrive safely at the biological reality underlying the data, we must to account for these errors during informatic analysis. Recently, researchers have begun tackling

With less than a week until Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey, we’re taking a look at a different meeting of elites. We’re not talking about Peyton Manning, and we’re certainly not talking about Russell Wilson. Instead, we’re focusing our attention on the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting, which took

Conferences

  Our CEO, Deniz Kural, recently joined Jason Tetrault, Architect at AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals, for a panel discussion of topics in genomics and pharmaceuticals in an event hosted by MongoDB. Before the panel, Jason gave what he described as a “fairly inaccurate overview of genetics processing” from the sequencer to the

Conferences

This Monday we went to Microsoft’s beautiful NERD building for Microsoft Research’s 2013 conference in Computational Aspects of Biological Information (CABI). The pastries were good and the presentations were even better. Jim Collins spoke about implementing flip-flops in bacteria, and about the prospects of biocomputation more generally; Pardis Sabeti discussed
