We are pleased to announce that Dr. Adam Novak will be the guest speaker of our upcoming Sven Furberg Seminar in Bioinformatics and Statistical Genomics on the coming Friday, Sep 27, at 14:30 in Lille auditorium, Kristen Nygaards hus.
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.
