Provide information on basic informatics topics important for next generation sequencing (e.g., distributed computing, cloud computing, compression methods, pattern/motif finding).
A workshop on Data Structures in Bioinformatics is planned for December 2014. See the web page for details: Data Structures in Bioinformatics
During the business meeting and the WG4 meeting (7.-9.11.2011), it was proposed to organize the WG4 work as challenges. We propose to organize a challenge for efficient variant calling.
Initial action plan. This is meant as background material to prepare for the workgroup meeting on 09.11.2011.
