Workshop: e-Infrastructures for Massively Parallel Sequencing

Jan/19 09:00 - Jan/20 18:00
Science for Life Laboratory, Uppsala University, Sweden
Monday, January 19, 2015 - 09:00 to Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 18:00

Science for Life Laboratory, Uppsala University, Sweden

This workshop will bring together scientists sharing their experiences on how to build efficient and sustainable e-infrastructures for massively parallel sequencing data management and storage, as well as setting up and maintaining an associated ecosystem of workflows, pipelines, and bioinformatics software.

1) e-infrastructures for NGS
2) NGS pipelines in action
3) Clinical data management
4) Workflow systems
5) Virtual machines for NGS

The workshop will also include a knowledge cafe with round-table discussions, and a set of short-tutorials.

The workshop is free of charge and includes coffee, lunch and dinner but requires registration. The number of participants is limited to 36 on a first come, first served basis. The event is funded by SeqAhead, SciLifeLab, eSSENCE, SeRC, NeIC and BILS.
