November 1-5 in Washington, D.C.
We look forward to seeing you in person at the American Society for Human Genetics Annual Meeting (ASHG 2023), November 1-5, 2023, in Washington, D.C. We will participate in a variety of activities and events including hosting an exhibit booth where you can stop by to meet NCBI experts, ask questions, provide feedback, or just chat! We’re especially excited to share our recent efforts on our clinical and human genetic resources and provide an update on the NIH Comparative Genomics Resource (CGR).
Check out NCBI’s schedule of activities and events:
NCBI Booth #1242, Exhibit Booth
- Thursday, November 2, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm
- Friday, November 3, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
- Saturday, November 4, 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
Friday, November 3, 12:15 – 1:45 pm
We want to hear from you! Bring your lunch and join us for a small round table discussion. Your feedback will inform NCBI’s development of and improvements to our toolkit of interconnected, interoperable genomic data and tools designed to maximize the impact of eukaryotic organisms and their genomic data on biomedical research.
These discussions are designed for:
- Translational researchers, biologists, educators, bioinformaticians, developers, librarians, and students who make use of comparative genomics in their work
- Users of NCBI data, tools, and resources for comparative genomics analyses
We want to hear from you about:
- Genomics tools and resources you use
- How well current NCBI resources meet your needs
- Resource gaps and barriers in comparative genomics that NCBI could address
