Dr. Adam Novak, senior software engineer in the UCSC Genomics Institute, will present his lecture "Graph-based genome representations".
Graph-based approaches to genomics problems can beat out traditional linear-reference-based tools, reducing reference allele bias and improving structural variant calling. For these reasons and others, graph genomics techniques are becoming more popular, and more graph-based tools are being developed. Here I present lessons on genome graph API design learned during the development of the vg variation graph toolkit. I show how techniques and libraries extracted from vg can be used to help developers quickly bootstrap new graph-based projects, forming an ecosystem of interoperable graph genomics tools.
