American Society of Human Genomics (ASHG) is an organization that gathers thousands of researchers and practitioners working with human genomics across the globe. They are active in many fields providing forums for supporting research, enhancing education and promoting services and policies. They publish one of the most known journals in the field - The American Journal of Human Genetics.
They organise American Society of Human Genomics Annual Meeting which became one of the largest and most important conferences in the world that focus on human genomics.
This year’s edition is taking place in Houston (TX) between 14th and 19th of October. A few thousands of participants will be able to listen to talks, participate in symposia, workshops and check out the research posters sessions. What is even more important, they will able to discuss their research and applications over informal networking meetings with fellow professionals.
Our Team is going to participate in that event. We have our poster accepted that will be presented on session number 3 (Friday, 18th of October, from 1PM to 3PM in Convention Center Exhibit Hall, Level 1). We summarize our recent research there - the official title is: “High-level optimizations over query engines ensemble: Accelerating distributed genomic data science.”. Tomek Gambin will also give a short talk during Somatic Mosaicism platform - “Identification of low-level parental somatic mosaic SNVs and InDels in a large exome sequencing cohort of individuals with Mendelian disorders.” (Thursday, 17th of October, 10.15 in Convention Center, Grand Ballroom A, Level 3).
We really count on meeting many people from research and business to discuss ideas, get some feedback on what we are doing and maybe even identify some interesting cooperation and learning opportunities. We are going to Houston with loads of positive energy and optimism.
If you happen to be at ASHG this year, let us know! We will be more than happy to have a chat.
