I am pleased to announce that we will be running a two-week summer
workshop on analyzing high-throughput sequencing data! This workshop
will run from June 26-July 8th, 2017, and it is an continuation of the
two-week NGS workshop run at Michigan State University since 2010.

Every year since 2010, I've been the primary organizer for a summer
workshop on Analyzing Next Generation Sequencing Data. In 2010 and
2011, I was funded internally by the Gene Expression in Disease and
Development group at MSU; since 2012, I've had a $50,000/yr grant from ...
On June 11th, 2010, I remember dropping the last workshop attendee off
at the Kalamazoo train station, turning the car towards home, and
nearly sobbing in relief that workshop was over and done and I could
finally get some sleep now. That workshop was the

Here at the Lab for Data-Intensive Biology (TM) we are constantly
trying to explore new ideas for advancing the practice of biological
data sciences. Below are some ideas that originated with or were
sharpened by conversations with Greg Wilson (Executive Director,
Software Carpentry) and Tracy Teal (Project Lead, Data
Two weeks ago, I ran a workshop at UC Davis on mRNAseq analysis for
which focused on building new gene models ab initio -- with a
reference genome. This was a milestone for me - the first time I
taught a workshop at UC Davis as a professor there! My ...
