I’m spending the next two weeks in Durham, North Carolina, for the NESCent workshop on next-generation sequencing. Which is to say, a workshop about collecting great big genetic datasets, and what you can do with them once you have them. I’ll be stretching my programming skills to the maximum, and hopefully getting a head start on some ideas I’ve had for good old Medicago truncatula.
If time permits, I may take a page from Carl Boettinger’s literally open lab notebook and post some notes and thoughts here as the workshop progresses, but it’s looking likely to be a full two weeks, and time may very well not permit. ◼
