Believe it or not we've done seven workshops so far this year, spread across five countries, spanning three continents -- the furthest ones in Australia (Sydney and Melbourne) and the most recent one in Helsinki, Finland. That's a lot of flying but on the bright side, now I have Gold status on American Airlines (hello fast track lane).

So after a restful summer hiatus we're gearing up to revisit continental Europe -- specifically, we're heading to Basel, Switzerland, at the invitation of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.

We'll be following our standard formula of one day of lectures focused on the Best Practices for variant discovery, and one day of optional hands-on practical sessions demonstrating key steps of analysis and interpretation. The registration page is now live at this link: http://www.sib.swiss/training/upcoming-training-events/training/gatk-workshop-lecture

One important note: we'll be offering the day of hands-on practicals twice (in order to serve more people), which is why the workshop dates span three days -- but to be clear each person will only attend two days out of the three (the lectures are on Day 1 for everyone). The practical sessions have limited space, and tend to fill up fast, so don't wait too long to register -- especially if you have a strong preference about which of the two optional days would work better for you.

If you can't make it to Basel, the next workshops will be at Broad in Boston/Cambridge (USA) on November 7-8, then at VIB in Leuven (Belgium), dates TBD (probably February). Details will follow in due time.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Basel!
