Register Now for the BaseSpace Developers Meeting at EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany


Registration is now open for the BaseSpace Developer’s Meeting at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) Heidelberg, Germany on May 7, 2014.  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.  Participants will use the BaseSpace 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.
