We are organizing a user workshop on GATK Best Practices, which will take place July 9-10 at the Broad Institute in Cambridge, MA, USA.

The workshop will take the same format as last time, with lectures in the morning and hands-on tutorials in the afternoon on both days.

It will be free and open to all comers, but space at the hands-on tutorials will be limited, so be on the lookout for our announcement when registration opens. We will announce it here on the forum and by Twitter (follow us at @gatk_dev).

We regret that we are not able to offer any financial assistance for travel or lodging. However all the workshop materials will be posted online on our Events page on the GATK website, so be sure to check them out if you can't be here in person.

We don't currently have plans for that but we aim to do one every 6 months, so it's possible that we'll do one in Nov/Dec.

@thatdnaguy Note: future releases may switch to mem at some point. For our prod pipelines this is tied to shift to cloud.

We're going to make an hg38 version of ExAC. And we'll make @dgmacarthur pay for it. #BioinformaticsCampaignPromises

You’re right @gatk_dev honesty is key! About variants manual filtering: “In any case you're probably in for a world of pain.” Ha now I know!

There is no NGS, NG is today so should only be called high-throughput sequencing #CSC #GATKworkshop https://t.co/paHcNimD7o
