Register now for a spot at the upcoming GATK workshop, which will be held in Cambridge, MA on October 21-22.

This workshop will cover the following topics:

  • GATK Best Practices for Variant Detection
  • Building Analysis Pipelines with Queue

The workshop is scheduled right before ASHG Boston, so if you're going to be in town for the conference, make sure you come a couple of days early and attend the GATK workshop!


For the session on Queue. Do you need to be familiar with writing java or scala code in order to attend (especially for the hands on)?

For the Queue session, you need to be familiar with some kind of scripting language. The material will be presented so as to make it accessible even if you have never seen a line of Java or scala in your life, as long as you know scripting basics. To clarify re: the hands-on session, that is mostly a beginner's intro to running GATK best practices, we won't cover any of the Queue material in the hands-on. Sorry if that wasn't clear in the description.
