Discuss contributing to a tool for interpretation of NGS findings for clinicians

  • There is an interesting discussion in the LinkedIn group, Computational Biology (a parallel discussion is said to exists in the NGS group as well). It is a proposed project to write an open-sourced tool to facilitate interpretation of whole-genome NGS genetic findings for clinicians. Has anyone seen this, have any thoughts or comments, or would like to play a role as a group?

    Here is the github link:

    I am from ArrayGen technologies and we are currently developing exome data analysis for clinicians. I will be glad to play role and join this group.

    Look forward to leaning from you all.

    I would like to introduce a very new sister meetup

    Happy meet up!

    This sounds like a great idea. Unfortunately none of the BayBIFX organizers really has the bandwidth right now to help get this off the ground. Have you tried BioCurious? http://www.meetup.com/BioCurious/

    They have an active bioinformatics group which focuses on data analysis and may also be interested in tool building. Generally at BayBIFX, we are a forum through which Bioinformaticians share their work, but we don't usually organize group projects.

    When you guys have some results to share, we'd love to hear about them at one of the forums. Also, when you have a date and time set for a meeting, we'd be happy to cross post it on the BayBIFX site.

      I looked into whether BioCurious has a data analysis group. Jenney Choi at BioCurious info said, “No, we don’t,” but Raymond McCauley jumped in to say the following:
      “Maybe you guys would want to start such a group? That would be a nice way to do some more joint BioCurious/BayBifx meetings.
      “We've got several startup companies in the area doing this kind of work, notably 23andMe, Invitae, Personalis, etc. This might be a chance for a collaboration there, too. And there's the biomedical informatics group at Stanford.
      “We'd be interested in hosting something like this at BioC.”
      What do you think? Any ideas for bringing some statistical order to the vast troves of data you bioinformaticists collect would be greatly appreciated.

    I can help from a clinical standpoint

    I would love to come to this one. Since I do not have a car, either Mountain View or East bay somewhere close to Bart or Amtrak will probably work for me, Is it going to be at 7?

    I recently built a metabolic pathway model for a marine diatom and used it to analyze whole genome transcriptome data in multiple environmental conditions. I have opinions about basic inquiries of the database which can give a scientist a "dashboard perspective" of the biochemical response of an organism to different environmental conditions. The dashboard would report on activity like lipid synthesis/degradation, protein syn/ degradation, carbohydrate syn/degradation and oxidative stress. It would be interesting to have a discussion on what " dashboard indicators " would be of interest to the broader community and to discuss challenges for extracting the data to build an easy to understand functional level model.
    Is anyone else interested in this kind of discussion?

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
