Look for SGD at TAGC 2016!

July 05, 2016


SGD staff will be attending The Allied Genetics Conference 2016 (TAGC) on July 13-17, 2016, in Orlando, Florida.¬†We will be hosting a Workshop, Posters, and an Exhibit Booth. We’ll be available during the entire conference to hear your comments or suggestions about SGD and answer your questions.

Five different model organism databases – SGD, WormBase, FlyBase, MGI, and ZFIN – will also be doing open demonstrations and tutorials in the Demo Room (Palms Ballroom Canary 3-4). There will be scheduled group presentations, one-on-one tutorials, troubleshooting and discussions.

Follow @yeastgenome and #TAGC16 on Twitter for the latest research being presented at TAGC.

Workshop: “Getting Even More out of SGD”

Saturday, July 16, 4:00pm – 6:00pm, Crystal Ballroom G2

We’ll be discussing our curation efforts in capturing yeast-human functional complementation data, the new sequence Variant Viewer, new genome browser, new data in YeastMine, and more. Bring your questions and comments – we love feedback!

Exhibit Booth

SGD will also have an exhibit booth at the conference, in conjunction with WormBase and FlyBase! Come by booth #530 (right across from the GSA booth) to take a spin on our site, learn about various features of the databases, and provide us with feedback as to what we can do to improve your SGD experience. You might even receive a prize for a good question or suggestion!

…and Psst! Be sure to ask about the newly-formed Alliance of Genome Resources

Posters
