The ENCODE project has generated more than 3500 datasets representing potential functional annotations of the human genome. In addition to this there are over 1000 datasets each in model organisms including mouse, fly and worm. Combined, this forms an extremely valuable resource and represents an unprecedented opportunity for applications in a variety of biomedical problems. And if you’ve ever wondered how to get the most out of this complex set of data, the ENCODE project has recently announced its first ENCODE User’s Meeting, to be held from June 29th – July 1st 2015 at the Bolger Center in Potomac, MD:
This aims to provide hands-on tutorial sessions, along with scientific presentations, with the goal of learning how ENCODE data has been used and providing opportunities to apply these tools to your own data.
