We invite you to register to participate in the 10th open, public meeting of the Genome in a Bottle Consortium. The Genome in a Bottle Consortium (GIAB) is a public-private-academic consortium hosted by JIMB and NIST to develop the reference standards, reference methods, and reference data to help bring whole human genome sequencing to practice.
Over this past year we have developed benchmark call sets for structural variation and a new set of benchmark calls for small variants. We are continuing to develop new calls in tough genome contexts and are breaking new ground in difficult regions of the genome. It's great to be a part of this as we work together to evolve technical mastery over the genome!
Please come and work together to establish the roadmap for what's next. Plenary session will take place Thursday all day and Friday morning. The open and public GIAB Steering Committee meeting will take place on Friday afternoon. Registration is free.
