Advanced Personal Genomics!

Joel Dudley previews his upcoming book (co-authored with Konrad Karczewski) on how to hack your own genomic data, in this hands-on-computer class, where you can use your own 23andMe data (or someone else's) to see which of your biochemical pathways are the most unique, what percentage of the Neanderthal genome you share, and other interesting stuff.

Bring your laptop and your 23andMe data, if you have it!

Time: 6 PM to 9:30 PM

    Had a great time, despite the problems with the WiFi. Joel and Konrad did an excellent job giving an overview of some of the analysis methods, and resources available. Looking forward to a more hands-on follow up class!

    For me this was a fascinating and eye-opening presentation about the 'limitations' and challenges of personal genomics at this time. Was great to start playing with the data myself - made me results seem more real to me.

    I'm 8th on the waiting list, but I assume that the likelihood of me getting into this workshop is pretty small? Is there any chance that you'll have another one of these workshops in the future?

    Is anyone driving down (and back up) from San Francisco? Can I hitch a ride?

    Too bad it looks like Ötzi's genome won't be available yet: http://blogs.nature.com/news/2011/10/the_iceman_genome_cometh.html

    We could check against his mitochondrial genome though!

    Alas, will be at TED MED. Looks cool, though.

    For those of you that do not have a 23andMe SNP analysis and data files (like myself) but are attending the class, these open-source 23andMe SNP files may be useful:

    It typically takes 1-3 months round trip.

    How long does it take to get a sample processed and data available?

    Hi Keith,

    To download your 23andMe data, go to Account -> Browse Raw Data, and click on the "download raw data" link top right. Or, I think you can go straight here:

    https://www.23andme.com/you/download/

    Make sure to select Data set: All DNA.

    I have my 23andMe data; how do I "bring it"? Just login to the 23andMe website during the talk?

    Ooh - this looks exciting! Note that I had added an idea along these lines for the upcoming Science Hack Day Nov 12-13 as well:
