We are excited to announce the first BaseSpace Developer Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, on October 21, 2013. Immediately preceding the 2013 ASHG conference, the BaseSpace Developer meeting is a great opportunity for both experienced and novice developers to network, exchange ideas, and learn more about the world’s most widely used cloud-based bioinformatics platform for next-generation sequencing. In this free, one-day forum, you can learn how to build and launch your own bioinformatics apps for BaseSpace.
Why develop for BaseSpace? 90% of the world’s next-gen sequencing data is produced on Illumina instruments, and your novel algorithms, open-source tools, or applications for BaseSpace users can directly impact the growth of genomic research. In short, you can change the way the world analyzes genomic data.
