Join Us For a Big Data Genetics Meetup and Some Guacamole!
We are hosting a big data, genetics, and guacamole party! Join our Meetup, “Dipping into Guacamole — a Spark-powered Somatic Variant Caller,” on Thursday, August 11th at 7pm, hosted at Phosphorus in New York City. (RSVP here.) Guest speakers Tim O’Donnell and Ryan Williams from Hammer Lab —a lab within the Icahn Institute at Mount Sinai — will walk through development progress on Guacamole, a somatic variant caller that helps identify DNA mutations from Next Generation Sequencing data and combines evidence from multiple DNA or RNA samples from the same patient for better cancer mutation sensitivity. We’ll have chips and guacamole for eating as well!
