ENCODE Users Meeting 2015

The NHGRI’s ENCODE project is holding a 2.5 day workshop available to those interested in learning how to navigate, analyze, use, and integrate ENCODE data. The meetings will be held from June 29-July 1, 2015 in Potomac, MD. More information is available at http://www.encode2015.org.

From ENCODE:

The ENCODE project has generated 3500 datasets in human, more than 1000 datasets each in model organisms including mouse, fly and worm. It provides an extremely valuable resource of potential functional annotations of the human genome and represents an unprecedented opportunity for applications in a variety of biomedical problems.

This meeting will have both scientific presentations and hands-on tutorial sessions with the goal of learning how ENCODE data has been used by the scientific community and providing opportunities to apply these tools to your own data. We will host many distinguished invited speakers and will also select talks from the submitted abstracts. In addition, this meeting will provide opportunities for scientist to interact with  people familiar with ENCODE datasets and analysis and foster future collaborations.
