Registration for the GATK workshop (Dec 4-5) is now open to the public. Attendance for the hands-on portion of the workshop is limited so be sure to sign up soon!

Please note that this workshop is primarily intended for Cambridge and Boston-area users; users from further afield are welcome to come, but at this time we regretfully cannot offer any financial assistance for travel or lodging. Rest assured that we will make videos of the talks and all teaching materials available online following the workshop.


UPDATE: be advised that the hands-on sessions have filled up and we have a long waiting list for those. However there is still space left in the main track (morning sessions on Best Practices).

From the @gatk_dev page describing .vcf files: "Don't write home-brewed VCF parsing scripts. It never ends well”

@froggleston @dgmacarthur Sounds like ExAC is reaching Uber stage. ‘Uber but for pizza’. ‘ExAC but for wheat’.
