Genomics in the Cloud Book Club!

Genomics in the Cloud by Geraldine A. Van der Auwera and Brian D. O’Connor

[Update: 2021-01-10: Thank you for your interest in our book club. We are currently closed to new members, but you can watch and subscribe to our meetings on the Genomics in the Cloud Book Club channel on YouTube.]

Introducing the Genomics in the Cloud Book Club, an online discussion group. Our 35+ members across 10 time zones are covering one chapter each week, and we expect to complete the book in March 2021.

For a chapter synopsis, please read this Twitter thread from one of the authors, Geraldine A. Van der Auwera. My book review is available on Amazon.

Taking a page from the R for Data Science Online Learning Community, we created a Slack account for discussions and a Zoom account for meetings. Last week, we had lively online conversations about reference genome diversity, workflow language selection, personal whole genome sequencing, reproducibility tips, and more.

After each meeting, we post the video to this GITC Book Club channel on YouTube so you can follow us anytime. Our member’s tweets are also available here. Thank you for tuning in!
