Event Type:  Webinar (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Informatics Tools for Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing Studies Supported by the NCI ITCR Program
Description:  NCI's Information Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program promotes research-driven informatics technology across the development lifecycle to address priority needs in cancer research. ITCR supports a wide range of informatics tools to serve current and emerging needs across the cancer research continuum. We invite you to join us for a SeqSPACE panel of speakers that will highlight several of the informatics tools from ITCR useful for next generation sequencing applications including transcriptomics, functional and clinical interpretation of variants.


Aviv Regev, Ph.D.
Professor of Biology, MIT; Core Member, Broad Institute; Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Informatic Tool: TRINITY, a toolkit for analysis of RNA sequencing data and cancer transcriptomes.

Michael Ryan, Ph.D.
Founder, In Silico Solutions
Informatic Tools: CRAVAT and MuPIT, tools to use and integrate a variety of functional annotations and structural information for interpretation of genetic variants.

Obi Griffith, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Medicine, Washington University; Assistant Director, McDonnell Genome Institute
