HiTSeq, an ISMB 2014 SIG, Announces Full Agenda

HiTSeq, an ISMB 2014 special interest group satellite conference, focusing on algorithms to analyze high-throughput sequencing data has announced the full agenda. HiTSeq 2014, High Throughput Sequencing Algorithms and Applications, is a two day meeting on 11th and 11th July, just before ISMB 2014 at Boston.

HiTSeq 2014, High Throughput Sequencing Algorithms and Applications

HiTSeq 2014, High Throughput Sequencing Algorithms and Applications

Two days of all things algorithms for sequencing data has over 20 talks selected from abstracts and two keynote talks. One is by Heidi Rhem, Ph.D., FACMG. Partners Healthcare Center for Personalized Genetic Medicine and the other keynote is by Chris Mason, Ph.D. Weill Cornell Medical College.NY, USA. Some of the talks also new unpublished work, which will be published in Bioinformatics as proceedings.

Check out the talk titles below. No doubt. they sound very interesting. And watch for the twitter hashtags #HitSeq14 and #ISMB14.

  1. […] ISMB 2014, one of the biggest bioinformatics/computational biology conferences has started today. The main ISMB 2014 is from Slides from 13th July, but a slew of interesting Special Interest Group & Satellite meetings have started today. To be precise, a mind boggling 13 SIGs/satellite meetings started today covering topics including Open Source Bioinformatics, Ontology, structural biology, regulatory genomics and high throughput sequencing.
