This workshop offers an inside view on the process of publishing a manuscript, from
the perspective of editors of leading human genetics journals. It covers the ­history
and rationale behind the editorial and peer-review processes, including studies
­
documenting the benefits of peer review. Potential issues with this process will also
be discussed. Attendees will understand how decisions at each review level ultimately
lead to immediate manuscript acceptance, request for edits, or manuscript rejection.

This workshop is organized and will be presented by Helga Thorvaldsdottir and
Jim Robinson, the Broad Institute. In this workshop, participants will learn to view
­
next-generation sequence (NGS) data in the Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV) and
will learn: (1) the basics of using the IGV application, (2) the different options IGV
provides for the visualization of NGS alignment data, and (3) how IGV supports
­
visual inspection of the data, including variant call validation, interpretation of insert
­
sizes and pair ­orientation in paired-end sequencing data, and inspection of genomic
­
rearrangements.
Workshop requirements: Registrants must bring a laptop to this session to participate.
Laptops should have full battery power and must have a wireless capability.
