Navigating Clinical Genomic Resources
at NCBI
12:30
pm – 2:00 pm, Room 102, Level 1
Separate advance

egistration was

ed, and admission is by ticket purchase
only
.
T
ickets are non-r
efundable.
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. 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 for exploring publicly available
­
aspects of GWAS studies, and methods for identifying and accessing relevant con-
trolled access data in dbGaP.
Workshop requirements: Registrants must bring a laptop to this session to participate.
Laptops should have full battery power and must have a wireless capability.
High-Throughput Data Analysis and

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. 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.
Workshop requirements: Registrants must bring a laptop to this session to participate.
Laptops should have full battery power and must have a wireless capability.
Welcome Reception
4:30
pm – 6:00 pm, Exhibit Hall, Level 1
At this year’s reception, wewill celebrate the theme of milestones in genetics, ­highlighting
the 65
th
anniversary of ASHG, the 60
th
anniversary of the discovery of the double he-
lix, and the 10
th
anniversary of the completion of the Human Genome ­Project. Each
­
scientific registrant’s badge holds either a discovery or a name ­associated with a dis-
covery in ­genetics. Match your famous person with his or her seminal discovery (or vice
versa). If you find your match, go to ASHG Central to enter your name into a drawing for
a free iPad. We will give away a total of 10 iPads (one to each person in five matching
