partnership opportunities for the RSG/DREAM 2017 conference in NYC

The International Society of Computational Biology is hosting the 10th Annual ISCB/RECOMB Regulatory and Systems Genomics with DREAM Challenges (RSG/DREAM 2017) on November 19-21 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) in New York City. …

List of collaboration tools

Thought the below was an interesting snippet from a dialogue I had….


Collaboration tools: Even a small group…will quickly get unwieldy if we coordinate using long CC-chains on email threads.

I think the minimum requirements are central management, email lists, and document sharing.

Options that come to mind are:
– Google G-suite, Drive, and Groups (free for nonprofits, robust features, integrate with existing login…)
– Slack plus Dropbox (more suited for teams who are actively collaborating, but it could be a great framework)
– Yammer (looks great, but I’ve never really used it)
– Office365 (it’s heavyweight and costs money, but it’ll give us all the features we could ever imagine)
– Basecamp (I haven’t used it in years, and it’s more about project management than collaboration)


NAR Breakthrough Article: denovo-db: a compendium of human de novo variants

.@denovodb: a compendium of [initially ~33K] human de novo variants w. phenotype, freely downloadable as a TSV table

As of July 2016, denovo-db contained 40 different studies and 32,991 de novo variants from 23,098 trios. Database features include basic variant information (chromosome location, change, type); detailed annotation at the transcript and protein levels; severity scores; frequency; validation status; and, most importantly, the phenotype of the individual with the variant.
