Raleigh, North Carolina

North Carolina State Retreat 2021

Save the date! The fourth annual GGI retreat will be held on Friday, August 20, 2021 at Hunt Library on NC State’s Centennial Campus. The GGI Annual Retreat welcomes new graduate students and new faculty, highlights the research of GGI laboratories and Research Interest Groups, and features discussions about GGS graduate student recruitment and admission strategies.

Virtual Event

UC Davis Iso-Seq Workshop

The Bioinformatics Core is excited to announce a three day workshop on Iso-Seq in partnership with PacBio! With instruction from experienced Core personnel and Iso-Seq analysis experts, this short course will provide a mixture of lectures and hands-on analysis to give participants an overview of the possibilities represented by full length transcript isoform sequencing with Iso-Seq.Participants will explore experimental design, cost estimation, data generation, and analysis, following Iso-Seq experiments from end to end and learning about several applications of this high quality full length RNA sequence data. Exercises will be performed with provided datasets, using command-line interaction on the Genome Center Compute Cluster.

There are no prerequisites other than basic familiarity with genomic concepts. Some familiarity with the command-line and R is helpful. However, we will dedicate time on the first day to bringing everyone up-to-speed to be able to run the commands needed during this workshop. This workshop will be held remotely over Zoom and Slack, and run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day.

Virtual Event

SMRT Science Journal Club

Join us for our quarterly SMRT Science Journal Club, which provides researchers a platform to showcase their publications involving PacBio HiFi data. Attendees can meet with authors after the event.

American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) Virtual Meeting

Join PacBio and your industry peers at the world’s largest online gathering of human genetics and genomics professionals. The meeting provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge science in all areas of human genetics. ASHG members and leading scientists from around the world are selected to present their research findings at invited, plenary, platform, and poster sessions. PacBio is a Gold Sponsor at this year’s event.

Lake Arrowhead, California

Lake Arrowhead Microbial Genomics

This conference is part of a yearly meeting initiated in 1991 to bring together genome sequencers, bioinformatics specialists, biologists, and geneticists, to forge interactions that would result in meaningful functional genomics. The goal of the meeting is to translate the influx of new genome sequencing information into useful biological studies.

The Lake Arrowhead 2021 meeting will have a major focus on microbial communities, the human microbiome, pathogens, and genome evolution. The field of genomics has reached the point where deriving the sequence of an organism’s entire genome is now seen as a beginning rather than an endpoint. The sequence itself is a powerful tool to guide further studies to achieve an understanding of the organism’s biology. This understanding requires either a detailed genetic analysis, or more rapid methods for developing functional genomics.

Cold Spring Harbor, New York

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory – Genome Informatics

The next Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory conference on Genome Informatics will be held at Cold Spring Harbor, New York (this meeting has alternated with the Hinxton meeting started under the joint auspices of CSHL and the Wellcome Trust). The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 3, and finish with lunch on Saturday, November 6, 2021.

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

AMP Annual Meeting and Expo

Association for Molecular Pathology (AMP) 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo will take place November 16-20 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Please plan to join us on November 16 for Short Course Day, and on November 17 for Corporate Workshop Day, ahead of the scientific program.

The theme of our meeting this year will be, “Leading Molecular Medicine Forward”.

AMP is the leading organization in the field of molecular diagnostics, and our annual meeting is widely considered the “premier gathering” of molecular professionals. As always, we will explore how cutting-edge technology and developments in molecular testing and diagnostics continue to have a major impact on patient care. The AMP 2021 Program Committee has planned an impressive program to spark dialogue and engagement amongst attendees and exhibitors from around the world, and we look forward to many happy reunions of colleagues and friends after this difficult pandemic period.
