Gearing Up for a Busy Marco Island AGBT Meeting

AGBTIt’s hard to believe that the annual Advances in Genome Biology and Technology conference will take place in Marco Island, Fla., in less than one week. We are looking forward to a great event and to the opportunity to see old friends and meet other scientists who could use help analyzing their genomics data.

There will be lots of ways to meet us or get to know our tools better. See all of our on-site activities.

Pre-AGBT workshop

QIAGEN’s Ingenuity Variant Analysis Accelerates Biological Interpretation of Large Cohort, Genome, Exome, and Targeted Panel Samples

Wednesday, February 12

12 pm – 2 pm

Presented by: Nathan Pearson, Principal Genome Scientist, QIAGEN Redwood City

Join us for a pre-AGBT workshop to see how Ingenuity Variant Analysis, QIAGEN’s secure online genome interpretation application, helps quickly find causal variants, genes, and pathways in human whole genomes and exomes — whether from probands, tumors, kindreds, or even big complex disease cohorts. We’ll cover exciting developments in the application, including: preliminary findings from the open collaborative analysis of myopia, a crowd-refined analysis of whole genomes via the Empowered Genome Community and Personal Genome Project; new enhancements to Ingenuity Variant Analysis, via a live demo showcasing key features; and our roadmap of features coming soon. Our experts will be available for one-on-one demos and training to help you quickly gain insights from your own data (human .vcf, (Master)Var, or .gvf) through a special promotional offer.

Register now!

Lunch will be served.
