Transcript of Minutes
Brief Description and Continuing Discussion (please edit in line):
Chip-Seq analysis tools and methods (led by David Sexton)
Chip-Seq is an active and growing area for bioinformatics core facilities. This 35-40 minute discussion will address and solicit from the participants: What types of experiments are being run? What applications (RNAseq, bisulfide-seq, medip) are prevalent? What tools/software has been utilized and which ones are found to be of value for a core facility--in peak finding, comparisons, etc?
Desktop sequence analysis software (Led by Simon Andrews)
This ever-present necessity does not diminish for the day-to-day sequence analysis needs of a lab. This 15 minute discussion will ask the questions: what are labs and cores using for creation of primers, vectors, restriction maps? In a market environment where vendor-supported products are continually in flux--VectorNTI, CLCBio--what options are available in the custom-built, academic environment or in stable vendor-supported options?
