Register Now for the BaseSpace Developers Meeting in San Francisco


Registration is now open for the BaseSpace Developer’s Meeting in San Francisco, CA on December 9, 2013.  This free, one-day forum 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.  As with the first Developer’s Meeting in Bostonparticipants will use the new Native App Engine to launch their own bioinformatics apps in BaseSpace.

Why develop for BaseSpace? Because 90% of the world’s next-gen sequencing data is produced on Illumina instruments, and your novel algorithms, open-source tools, and applications for BaseSpace users can directly impact the growth of genomic research. In short, you can change the way the world analyzes genomic data.
