BCC2020 pre-conference open house

virtual open house

After much discussion, the BCC2020 organizing committee has decided to hold the meeting on Remo.co, which is similar to Zoom but offers a more conference-like experience, with “floors” and “tables” where you can mingle with other attendees. It has great small group and presentation support, including for posters and demos. It’s also more fun than most online conference platforms.

Because Remo is not familiar to most BCC participants, we are holding two open houses, one in each hemisphere, the day before BCC training starts. These walk-throughs will introduce participants to Remo’s features and demonstrate how to navigate between sessions, poster/demos, BoFs, training and everything else.

All registered participants will receive invites by email the day before the open houses. If you’re not already registered, remember that the early registration discount ends on July 10, and registration will close on July 15.

The events below show up in the Eastern US timezone (ET) but you can follow the instructions to switch to your local timezone.

We are looking forward to showing you the BCC venue. (But you’ll have to bring your own snacks.)

    Please establish drug discovery workflow software for the individual;
    with the option of using cloud resources, including cloud computing.
    This is something that you might really have a field day with, linking
    together machine learning, bioinformatics, visualization, animation,
    cloud capabilities. Having an easy method to introduce new features
    when these become available.

    As an individual I’m having difficulty finding and using the relevant
    resources; dare I say it’s like a giant jigsaw puzzle where one can’t
    see what piece goes where or how it connects.

    Presently, using Ubuntu, I’ve found packages that relate to gatk, however its not obvious that gatk exists as a package also there
    appears to be architecture dependencies with this package.

    Though biopython provides many useful features, higher level integrations aren’t apparent.
