On October 4th, 2018, FHBig hosted a lean coffee meeting gathering thoughts from our members about FHBig’s future activities and direction. Below is the summary and follow-ups:
- Better use of Beagle on Rhino/Gizmo
Follow-up: SciWiki has a page about beagle usage: How to Beagle.
- Illumina’s methyl-seq and other methylation methods?
Action: Should we create a co-working poll asking people around?
- A lot of different groups forming/established. How to integrate or not?
Follow-up: COOP is working on integrating groups with similar insterest (bioinformatics and data science) .
- Building pipelines on AWS
Follow-up: SciComp/Sam/Amy/Jenny huddle up to build workflow on AWS using scientific workflow engine.
- Should FHBig invite peple from UW/ISB/Allen, etc?
Follow-up: We already have members from other institution. Please invide people who are interested in FHBig.
Follow-up: The COOP is hosting a community-focused NCBI-style Hackathon in February. Propose a project here.
- Journal club
Follow-up: We will start our first journal club on Feb. and discuss DNA-seq data. Please make proposal on slace so that we can keep the journal club going.
- Should FHBig organize tutorials?
- Topics in data science you are passinate about or interested in
- Protips for commonly used programs like picard, granges, and etc
- More lightning talk on demo of people’s day-to-day work
- Technical application focused groups?
- How do we start office hour?
- Journal club
- Find experts of picard and bioconductor and offer pop-up workshops
- Create co-working-polls to find peple interested in methyl-seq and methods
- Organize pop-up workshops for day-to-day works and journal clubs. But what specific topics should we cover? Please post requests on
#generalchannel on slack and we can ask local experts to help us.
- It is highly encouraged to create an interest and co-working group of your interest. The blog post, How to Start a Co-working Group, suggests the tactics and resources.
