Saturday and Monday Posters:
#7 "Identifying Mutations in Transcriptionally Active Regions on Genomes Using Next Generation Sequencing." Eric Olson, PerkinElmer, presents ways in which RNA-seq can be used to define transcripts to identify functional mutations in organisms that have sparsely annotated reference genomes.
#11 "What Does It Take to Identify the Signal from the Noise in Molecular Profiling of Tumors?" Eric Olson, PerkinElmer presents ways to use RNA sequencing and bioinformatic approaches to filter the vast numbers of variants observed in DNA sequence data obtained from tumors to a manageable number that are most likely to be the drivers of tumor growth.
#119 "Elucidating the Effects of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on the Atlantic Oyster Using Global Transcriptome Analysis" Natalia Reyero, Genetics and Development Biology Center, NHLBI. If you are interested in learning about the aftermath of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, you will find Natalia's work interesting.
And that's not all. The the booth will be hopping. We will have meet the speaker opportunities on Sunday and Tuesday and as well as many demos of our GeneSifter Analysis and LIMS products. PerkinElmer Informatics will have individuals to show new features in PerkinElmer's Electronic Laboratory Notebook and other products, and Caliper and Chemagen reps will be on hand to talk about the great things we do for sample prep.
Check us out a Booth 522 to get schedules and see what's new.
