SC is the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Technologies for managing biodata

SESSION: Technologies for managing biodata

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM



DNA sequencing and related technologies are producing tremendous volumes of data. The raw data from these instruments needs to be reduced through alignment or assembly into forms that can be further processed to yield scientifically or clinically actionable information. The entire data workflow process requires multiple programs and information resources. Standard formats and software tools that meet high performance computing requirements are lacking, but technical approaches are emerging. In this BOF, options such as BAM, BioHDF, VCF and other formats, and corresponding tools, will be reviewed for their utility in meeting a broad set of requirements. The goal of the BOF is look beyond DNA sequencing and discuss the requirements for data management technologies that can integrate sequence data with data collected from other platforms such as quantitative PCR, mass spectrometry, and imaging systems. We will also explore the technical requirements for working with data from large numbers of samples.
