The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) represents the best of all worlds when it comes to soliciting and presenting informatics science and practice. In the rapidly moving world of health and healthcare, informatics innovation is integral to progress.
At the November 12-16, 2016 AMIA symposium in Chicago, IL, GeneLab’s Dan Berrios presented a poster entitled, “GeneLab’s Phase 1 Results and Plans.” GeneLab team members Kaushik Chakravarty, Dennis Heher and Sandy Dueck hosted an exhibit booth and actively engaged conference attendees in discussions about the role of GeneLab’s open science platform in maximizing data return from biological experiments performed on the International Space Station and other NASA missions. More than 200 of the estimated 2500 scientists attending the four-day conference visited the GeneLab exhibit booth. Questions asked included:
Local and international visitors to the GeneLab booth represented diverse backgrounds:
In addition to presenting a poster and hosting an exhibit booth, GeneLab team members attended several sessions:
Plenary: UBiome, a citizen-science company sequencing microbiomes.
Didactic Panel: Human Microbiome - Challenges and Opportunities. Reports on the current state-of-the-art for analyzing microbiome: assays, nature of the data (sparse), various human data sets, and applications to human health.
Paper: Assessing Metadata Quality of Federal Data Repository
Panel: Ensuring Reproducibility in Observational Research: Building and Sharing Knowledge Resources in the OHDSI Network
Paper: CEDAR: Better Data Sharing Through the Authoring of Better Metadata
Paper: Discovering Representational Differences Between Pathway Knowledge Bases for Pathway Resource Merging
