Connect with the Knowledge Portal Network team at ASHG!

Next week, the human genetics research community will come together in San Diego for one of the most important conferences of the year: the annual American Society of Human Genetics meeting. The Knowledge Portal Network team will be there, and in addition to presenting all the new data and features in the Type 2 DiabetesCerebrovascular Disease, and Cardiovascular Disease Knowledge Portals (KPs), we'll be launching an entirely new Portal for the genetics of sleep disorders!

We'll also present an interactive workshop on Friday that will go over the basics of navigating the Knowledge Portal Network. Download the flyer here, and find more details below.

Here's the schedule of events for the week:

Tuesday, October 16
2:05-2:30 pm: Jason Flannick will present a talk, "Infrastructure for analyzing and disseminating large-scale genetic data for type 2 diabetes and other complex diseases," in the ASHG/IGES/ISCB Joint Symposium.
Room 6C - Upper Level/San Diego Convention Center

Wednesday, October 17
The Knowledge Portal team will be at our booth, #219, in the exhibit hall from 10am-4:30pm.
We'll also be at the Broad Institute Genomic Services booth, #1634, from 10:30-11:30am.

Thursday, October 18
The team will again be at our booth, #219, in the exhibit hall from 10am-4:30pm.

Friday, October 19
We'll again be at our booth, #219, in the exhibit hall from 10am- 4:30pm, but today the booth will be closed around lunchtime so that we can present a special tutorial session on the Knowledge Portals. See details and sign up below. After the session, we'll be back at our booth until 4:30pm and will also be at the Broad Institute Genomic Services booth, #1634, from 2:30 - 3:30pm.

At lunchtime on Friday, grab your laptop and come to a workshop on the Knowledge Portals:

Navigating complex disease genetics: using the Knowledge Portal Network to move from SNPs to functional insights
12:30-1:45pm
Room 28C, Upper Level, San Diego Convention Center

We'll go over some basics, illustrate workflows, and answer questions about how you can use KPs to investigate SNPs, genes, or regions of interest and turn genetic data into insights about complex diseases.

Please sign up so we can plan for refreshments. We'll send you a reminder a few days beforehand. We look forward to seeing you there! Please contact us with any questions or suggestions for topics you'd like to discuss.
