2019 Rocky Mountain Genomics HackCon: Visualization Tools for Exploring Data Analysis
Please join us for the 2019 Rocky Mountain Genomics HackCon - Visualization Tools for Exploring Data Analysis!
RMGH aims to break away from the traditional conference experience by offering immersive and interactive opportunities. All attendees will be offered a selection of one-day, hands-on technical workshops leading up to a one-day plenary, poster and exhibitor session. Interested parties are also highly encouraged to apply for placement in the final three days of the event which will feature a collaborative NCBI-style genomics hackathon.
Technical Track Workshop: BioInformatics pipeline development using NextFlow, Singularity, and Git.
BioFrontiers IT will be presenting a one-day, hands-on exploration of what is possible using modern containerization and pipeline management technologies to standardize bioinformatics pipelines. We will be hosting this interactive session to ease the transition into more consistent and standardized data processing using Git, NextFlow and Singularity. Attendees will leave the session with working knowledge and a real-world example of how these technologies can help to ensure reproducibility in bioinformatics analyses. The session will be designed to allow participants from any institution to build useful tools that will run on diverse computing resources. The event will be capped with testimonials and project descriptions from researchers using these tools to support their workflows.
This year's conference will feature an exciting array of speakers who approach data visualization from many perspectives:
- Maria Nattestad - DNA Nexus (Keynote)
- Deanna Church - Inscripta Inc.
- Ryan Layer - BioFrontiers Institute, CU Boulder
- Danielle Szafir - Dept. of Information Science, CU Boulder
- Dan Larremore - BioFrontiers Institute, CU Boulder
Following the workshop and conference, there will be a three-day hackathon.
