TCAG New Technologies Seminar: Building Genomics Applications in the Cloud with the DNAnexus Platform

TCAG, OGI and DNAnexus will be co-hosting two seminars on Thursday September 26 in MaRS TMDT Room 14-203. The first (10:30 a.m.) is tailored towards a bioinformatics audience and the second (2 p.m.) for the software development community. Both seminars are free of charge. No registration is required and all are welcome to attend.

The bioinformatics community faces numerous challenges in developing research and clinical software for analyzing genomic data. The DNAnexus Platform enables solutions to these problems. This presentation will cover its features: massively scalable on-demand cloud infrastructure, fully configurable and scriptable genomics API, command-line interface and SDKs, collaboration and community support, visualization and publication tools, enterprise grade security, compliance with clinical and diagnostic standards.

Presented by: Andrey Kislyuk, Senior Software Engineer, DNAnexus

Time and place: Thursday, September 26 from 2 to 3 p.m. Room 14-203, MaRS TMDT, 101 College Street

Andrey will conduct a brief demo of developing applications on the platform, as well as scientific collaboration, publishing, and reproducibility features.
