OpenCRAVAT: An Open Source Collaborative Platform for the Annotation of Human Genetic Variation

January 29, 2020 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET
NCI Shady Grove, 9609 Medical Center Drive, Room 2W910/912, and via Webinar

On Wednesday, January 29, Dr. Kym Pagel will present "OpenCRAVAT: An Open Source Collaborative Platform for the Annotation of Human Genetic Variation."

In this talk, Dr. Pagel will describe OpenCRAVAT, a new open source, scalable decision support system for studying gene variants and gene prioritization. Once installed, both command line and dynamic, user-friendly graphical interfaces allow users to easily download tools from an extensive resource catalog, create customized pipelines, and explore results in a richly detailed viewing environment. OpenCRAVAT is funded through NCI's Informatics Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program (1U24CA204817-01).

The Data Science Seminar Series presents talks from innovators in the research and informatics communities both within and outside of NCI.
