DAILY MEETING HIGHLIGHTS
Galaxy Advanced Users Workshop: Working with
High-Throughput Data & Data Visualization
12:45
pm – 2:15 pm, Room 304/306, Esplanade Level South
Jennifer Hillman-Jackson, Penn State, and Jeremy Goecks, Emory University, will
present this advanced level interactive workshop on the Galaxy tools. This workshop
builds on the Galaxy 101 workshop, and basic knowledge of Galaxy will be helpful.
Galaxy supports integration of data from multiple sources, including user-uploaded
data and popular online resources, such as UCSC, BioMart and InterMine as well
as complex bioinformatics analysis. You will learn to use the free public Galaxy Web
server
/
)
to analyze NGS data, Galaxy’s visual analytics to itera-
tively guide analysis, etc.
Tickets are non-refundable.
Separate advance registration
required and admission by advance ticket purchase only.

Paul Flicek, Giulietta M. Spudich, and Bert Overduin from the European Bioinformatics
Institute, will lead an interactive workshop on the Ensembl genomic tools
,
introducing highlights and new ways of integrating information
in the genome browser and analysis of variation data. Gene regulation tracks based
on integrated analysis of ENCODE and human epigenome data will be explored and
the presenters will also provide some pointers on accessing Ensembl through the
MySQL and Perl APIs. Ensembl provides an infrastructure for genomic information for
over 60 species, from storage to analysis and visualization. The workshop is tailored

An Interactive Play: Drama, Discourse and Genomics:

OUT
From IRBs to IFs
7:00
pm – 9:00 pm, Room 300, Esplanade Level South
This interactive session weaves audience participation with the premiere of an
original new vignette-play that illuminates ethical, psychological, social, legal, and
policy concerns surrounding the sharing of information generated by next-generation
sequencing. Between each act of the fictionalized play, audience and actors are en-
gaged in discussion, as the vignettes evolve—from an Institutional Review Board (IRB)
meeting through the informed consent process to the disclosure of incidental findings
(
IFs). The presenters, Lynn Bush and Karen Rothenberg, delve into controversial ethi-
cal issues and the dramatization is intended to foster a deeper appreciation for po-
tential conflicts when disclosing genomic information.
Tickets are non-refundable.
