Biology of Genomes Meeting 2013

We’re looking forward to the annual Biology of Genomes meeting in Cold Spring Harbor this year. In addition to the keynote lectures by Andrew Fire and Eric Lander we’ll be paying close attention to the following talks:

  • Characterizing the genetic basis of transcriptome diversity through RNA-sequencing of 922 individuals – Battle, A
  • Pulling out the 1%—Whole-genome capture for the targeted enrichment of ancient DNA sequencing libraries – Carpenter, M.L.
  • Highly accurate determination of indels (and SNPs) from human resequencing data with an assembly-based approach – Jaffe, D.B.
  • A general approach to account for technical noise in single-cell RNA-seq experiments – Marioni, J.
  • Integrative genomic analysis of RNA and ChIP-seq data across multiple cell types identifies “stretch enhancers” associated with type 2 diabetes – Parker, S.C.
  • A genome-wide estimate of meiotic gene conversion rate in humans – Williams, A.
  • Comprehensive analysis of relapsed acute lymphoblastic leukemia reveals intronic mutations that drive FLT3 over-expression – Wilson, R.K.

Our interests are not only in high-throughput genomics, but also functional and computational genomics, hence the diversity in the highlighted talks. If you’re not able to attend in person (it was oversubscribed even before the abstract deadline), you can listen to the lectures in real time by registering with CSHL’s Leading Strand. If you’re attending drop us a line!
