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:

    What we're about

    The mission of the Bay Area Bioinformatics Forum is to help scientists collaborate and grow by providing a network for sharing ideas and technical knowledge about bioinformatics. At our monthly meetings, you will find scientists, professionals, students and DIY'ers sharing information on best practices, the latest software, biological concepts, and new ideas.

    We meet at several locations across the Bay Area with the site rotating each month to San Francisco, Berkeley, Menlo Park, Mountain view, Foster City, etc.

    If you are a bioinformatician, use some bioinformatics in your work or are interested in learning more about it, you can sign up here ( to be informed of future events. Sign up, drop by and join the conversation.
