Today we announced the winner of the Pistoia Alliance Sequence Squeeze Competition. James Bonfield, a member of the sequencing informatics team at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, has received the US$15,000 prize for developing the best new algorithm for compressing next-generation sequencing (NGS) data.
The conference, to be held just before the start of the Bio-IT World Conference and Expo, will showcase several Pistoia Alliance projects aiming to improve the management and analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) data.
Last week I was part of a very interesting email exchange on the topic of biomarker exchange standards. The correspondents were Sandor Szalma of Johnson & Johnson, who is heading up the embryonic working group on this subject, and James McGurk, director of informatics at Daiichi Sankyo Pharma Development.
At our event, the pitches were delivered by members of the Pistoia Alliance Board, and we gave the audience play money so that they could be the dragons and award their “funds” to the pitch or pitches they liked best.
