[Gofriends] MGED13: High Throughput Sequencing : June 30th final abstract deadline

Gavin Sherlock sherlock at
Tue Jun 22 11:56:44 PDT 2010

Dear Colleagues,

Apologies if you receive this more than once.

This is a reminder that the final abstract submission deadline for MGED13, whose focus is high throughput sequencing and translational bioinformatics, is next Wednesday, June 30th.  Continuing from last year, we will again be running a poster competition, with prizes for the best posters by graduate and postdoctoral students.

The MGED13 meeting will be in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and will take place July 13-15, 2010, in conjunction with the 18th Annual ISMB meeting.

Further information, including for registration, is available at

The scientific focus of the meeting will be translational genomics and ultra high throughput sequencing - as well
as associated standards, data handling issues and analysis techniques.  We will again have tutorials this year,
including two tutorials on the analysis of high throughput sequencing data - one using unix based tools, and one
using R and Bioconductor.   The final program is below.

We look forward to seeing you all in Boston,

Gavin Sherlock
