23andMe (in the form of Serge Saxonov and me, Brian Naughton) will be at the 7th Annual International Conference on Computational Systems Bioinformatics at Stanford this Tuesday. We will be giving a tutorial on some of the more technical and scientific aspects of 23andme’s service. It’s not all glitz and glamour, you know.
Serge and I will have a chance to talk about what’s going on under the hood of the Gene Journal (now called Health and Traits), Genome Explorer (now called Browse Raw Data), our many ancestry features, and of course, our new research effort, 23andWe.
23andMe is in good company at this year’s CSB, with other tutorials being given by Peter Karp from SRI, Mackenzie Cowell and Jim Morrison from MIT, Markus Covert from Stanford, Nader Pourmand from UCSC, and Jim Kent from UCSC. Come by if you have the chance!
