PGRN and Hackseq are organizing two different and exciting events at the upcoming ASHG2016 Meeting!
PGRN is bringing together scientists who study the interactions between genomes and drug responses. A two day symposium will be held on October 17–18, 2016. The symposium will be filled with sessions on innovative approaches for identifying genes that influence drug response, the role of pharmacogenomics in drug discovery, technologies used in pharmacogenomics studies and the evolution of pharmacogenes. Attendance is free. Registration as well as abstract submissions for the PGRN-ASHG Symposium can be found here.
Hackseq is based on the NCBI hackathons. Teams of 5-10 people will tackle omics-related problems through the development of relevant software in three days (October 16 – 18, 2016). A list of the omics-related projects participating in hackseq can be found here. Participant applications are open until July 15 (registration is free). Participants do not need to submit sequencing/genotyping data and team leaders will be responsible for sourcing relevant omic data sets for their projects.
Go to Vancouver, where you can snowboard and surf in the same day! Go to ASHG2016 in Vancouver, you can attend both PGRN and Hackseq genomics events, all in one day! Don’t miss it!
