If you would like to create a BOF, just sign up for a wiki account, login, and edit this page.

Friday BOFs (Day 1)

  • Dana Robinson - BioHDF, HDF5-based NGS data storage.
  • Biology in Python -- discussion on doing bioinformatics work with the fabulous Python programming language, using libraries like Biopython.

Saturday BOFs (Day 2)

  • Representing/Querying NGS Data in HBase/Hadoop -- a BOF to discuss how to represent, process, and query NGS data in HBase and/or HDFS/Hadoop. I'm interested in discussing ideas of how to represent information of interest to NGS researchers (specifically focused on variants, small indels, large indels, structural variation etc) in HBase tables.
  • Brainstorming for BOSC 2011 in Vienna; future of OBF
