Keynote: Planet Scale Analysis with Millions of Genomes

Speaker

Abstract

As millions of people all over the world get their genome sequenced, physicians and researchers as well as the individuals themselves will want to ask questions of these data. To ask questions at a planet scale, however, we must re-imagine the computational and storage infrastructure required. We also need a consistent naming scheme for parts of the genome. To address this we invented tiling – a technique that divides the genome into about 10 million overlapping, variable-length sequences, or “tiles”, each with a unique 24-base tag at each end. We use examples from public data to show tiling supports simple and consistent names, annotation, queries, machine learning,
and clinical screening.    Someday soon the general public may get to
know the tiles in their own genomes, while researchers and doctors may use the information to realize precision medicine.

  • Learn about free and open source software (FOSS), open-standards and open-data that can help you build necessary informatics infrastructure
  • Use Tiling to facilitate planet scale analyses of genomic data
