ASHG Undergraduate Faculty Genetics Education Workshop

Advance registration required. Please note, registration for this workshop is independent of the ASHG 2013 Annual Meeting registration.

Tuesday, October 22
8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Room 152, Level 1, Convention Center

This is a special session for faculty and other instructors of undergraduate students organized by the ASHG Undergraduate Faculty Subcommittee before the commencement of the annual meeting. The focus of this year’s  

 

workshop will be on the place of modern genetics in the undergraduate curriculum, which has traditionally been dominated by classical, transmission genetics.  With so much paradigm-shifting new information, what is essential for students to understand?  Can an inverted curriculum, placing emphasis on genetic complexity first, work in the classroom?  How do we define a gene for our students? Join us for pedagogy and content sessions addressing these questions and more. Trainees serving as teaching assistants or interested in teaching are encouraged to attend. 

 

 

The 2013 agenda is now available.

 

 

The cost of the workshop is $25 USD, which includes breakfast and lunch. For questions, contact Katherine Lontok, klontok@ashg.org.

An interactive play in 3 acts starring (subject to change):

  • Barbara Biesecker, NIH
  • Vence Bonham, NIH
  • Jeff Botkin, University ofUtah
  • Carlos Bustamante, Stanford University
  • James Evans, University of North Carolina
  • Malia Fullerton, University of Washington
  • Eric Green, NHGRI, NIH
  • Brynn Levy, Columbia University
  • Howard Levy, Johns Hopkins University
  • Robert Nussbaum, UCSF
  • Heidi Rehm, Harvard
  • Jacinda Sampson, Columbia University (Narrator)
  • Virginia Sybert, University of Washington
  • Wendy Uhlmann, University of Michigan

This provocative new interactive play provides the opportunity to imagine, contemplate, and debate the complexity of ethical and psychosocial dilemmas posed by research protocols that increasingly propose the application of cutting-edge genomic technologies in ways that challenge the boundaries of current ethical norms -- particularly when whole genome sequencing involves pregnant women and their fetuses, newborns, and “unaffected” children.

 

This event is organized and presented by Lynn Bush, Columbia University, and Karen Rothenberg, NHGRI/NIH, University of Maryland Law. Their play centers on a hypothetical research study proposing whole genome sequencing with children who have autism spectrum disorder, their “unaffected” siblings and parents, and fetuses. The actor-panelists and presenters engage with the audience between the three acts on issues raised. They explore with the audience shifting perspectives of “normal” in the context of genomic findings as well as phenotypic expression, and illuminate how genetic variations, behavioral manifestations, and their categorizations are subject to modification over time. This interactive session helps us grapple with personal, professional, and societal implications that may ensue when re-conceptualizing boundaries of “normal” as discoveries are made with whole genome sequencing on vulnerable populations.

 

Seating is limited, so please register early. Refreshments are included in the $15 USD registration fee. Seats may be reserved only by registering in advance. Tickets will be issued along with your meeting badge. Tickets are non-refundable.

High-Throughput Data Analysis and Visualization with Galaxy

Separate advance registration required. Please check the appropriate box on the meeting registration form.
Wednesday, October 23
12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Room 104AB, Level 1, Convention Center

 

 

Workshop requirements: You must bring your laptop. Your laptop should have full battery power and must have a wireless card.

 

Anton Nekrutenko and Jennifer Hillman-Jackson, Penn State University will present this workshop in which participants will learn how to use Galaxy to analyze and integrate next-generation sequencing (NGS) data.  Galaxy is an analysis and data integration framework for accessible, reproducible, and transparent biomedical research, which is available as a free public Web site and as an open-source software package that can be installed locally or on a computer cloud. Galaxy includes support for a wealth of high-throughput sequencing tools, and we will walk through specific examples of analyses using 1000 Genomes data using Galaxy to extract insight from “big data.”  The workshop will also demonstrate Galaxy’s visual analytics capabilities, showing how to use Galaxy visualization to iteratively guide analysis.

 

In this workshop, participants will learn how to understand next-generation sequencing data formats such as FASTQ and SAM/BAM, how to run NGS tools using Galaxy,  and how to visualize NGS analysis results and then use that visualization to iteratively guide analysis, all within Galaxy. Attendees will gain: (1) hope that bioinformatics analysis of large NGS datasets is tractable, possible, and comprehensible, even when you don’t have a trained bioinformatician on staff, and (2) actual hands-on experience at doing complex analysis and visualization on next-generation sequencing data, an otherwise daunting task for many biological researchers. Target audience is researchers who have, or will shortly have, next-generation sequence data they want to analyze and extract insight from. Bioinformaticians and researchers with bioinformatics experience who are unfamiliar with Galaxy will also benefit from the workshop.

 

Seating is limited, so please register early. Lunch is included in the $25 USD registration fee. Seats may be reserved only by registering in advance. Tickets will be issued along with your meeting badge. Tickets are non-refundable.

 


 

[CANCELLED] Navigating Clinical Genomic Resources at NCBI

Separate advance registration required. Please check the appropriate box on the meeting registration form.
Wednesday, October 23
12:30 pm – 2:00 pm

Room 102, Level 1, Convention Center

 

 

 

 

Workshop requirements: You must bring your laptop. Your laptop should have full battery power and must have a wireless card.

 

This workshop is organized by Deanna Church, NIH/NLM/NCBI. She will be joined by Donna Maglott and Michael Feolo of NIH/NLM/NCBI in presenting the workshop. The interactive workshop will provide general strategies for quickly finding variation and phenotype data at NCBI, provide strategies for transitioning to the new genome assembly, and outline how to identify regions of the genome that have been revised dramatically, potentially modifying data interpretations. This workshop will be valuable for anyone interested in variant identification or interpretation in the context of human biology.


The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) provides data and tools that are indispensable to the clinical genomics community. In addition to supporting general variation databases such as dbSNP, dbVar and dbGaP, NCBI also maintains more clinically focused resources such as ClinVar, MedGen and the Genetic Testing Registry (GTR). The NCBI has multiple tools to represent and analyze large-scale genomic data such as genome assemblies. The update of the human reference assembly to GRCh38, which will incorporate many improvements in the representation of human chromosomes and common structural variants, introduces the complication of porting a vast amount of biological data onto a new framework.

 

Participants will learn how to identify variants of interest based on genomic location, disease association or relationship to other genome features; strategies for transitioning variant interpretation and discovery to the new reference assembly and exploring publicly available aspects of GWAS studies and identifying and accessing relevant controlled access data in dbGaP. Basic and Clinical researchers who are interested in variant discovery or variant interpretation will benefit from attending this workshop.

 

Seating is limited, so please register early. Lunch is included in the $25 USD registration fee. Seats may be reserved only by registering in advance. Tickets will be issued along with your meeting badge. Tickets are non-refundable.

"Postdocs: What Should You be Looking for and How to Find Them" with Andrew Green (12:30 - 1:15 pm)

Many Ph.D.s just kind of fall in to a postdoc, rather than thinking about it from a strategic perspective. Your postdoc is never an end in itself; rather it’s a means to another end whether that goal is a faculty position at a research university, at a small college, or perhaps an industry job. Learn how to find postdoc opportunities that will best prepare you for that next step, and how to use your postdoc experience to facilitate the transition to your next position.

 

"Beyond the Bench…Preparing for Your Career Transition in the Life Sciences" with Joe Tringali (1:15 - 2:00 pm)

Is there a way to move your skills from the bench to a related career? There is, assuming one is focused and willing to invest some time in making the switch. We will explore different paths to alternative scientific careers.

The workshop will offer insight into methods for intersecting data among linked tables and how to filter data to acquire specific subsets of large datasets. This workshop demonstrates the powerful visualization technology of the Browser for both Browser-resident and user data, offering simple but full-featured displays for large datasets. Advanced features of the Custom Track utility will be presented, which allow visualization of high-throughput DNA sequencing data (HTS) via several data types including BAM, bigBed and VCF. Personal Genome SNP format offers visualization of base-level differences between a sample and the reference assembly. User data can be compared to or intersected with resident data, including ENCODE, 1000 Genomes, dbSNP, DGV, and other variation data. User-hosted datasets (the Track Data Hub feature) will also be presented. The UCSC Genome Browser includes a suite of tools for the molecular biologist or clinician who is not highly trained in bioinformatics.

 

The workshop is designed for researchers and clinicians seeking to leverage the large variety of genome-wide datasets in the UCSC database in their work, especially those generating large datasets from their own high-throughput DNA sequencing experiments. The level will be appropriate for graduate students through PIs and clinicians with an understanding of molecular biology, but not necessarily bioinformatics. Previous familiarity with the Genome Browser is encouraged, but not required. For technical or content questions about the workshops, contact Robert Kuhn via email at kuhn@soe.ucsc.edu.
