ENCODE working groups

From Encode2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Contact information for the working group participants can be found at Contacts. Conference calls for the working groups are scheduled on the Calendar. If call minutes are taken, they should be added or uploaded to the Calls page.

Broad Peak Calling

Goal:Provide a best-practices recommendation to ENCODE and modENCODE on identifying regions enriched for broadly distributed biochemical features. This will require identifying the best way to determine the boundaries of broadly distributed biochemical features, and determining what marks are broad, narrow, or mixed. This may result in a publication, for example comparing how well different peak callers perform with broad marks.

Contacts: Peter Park, Mike Pazin, Leslie Adams

Teleconference: Alternate Mondays, 1PM Eastern

Dial-In Information: Domestic: (866) 448-5431 International: (303) 330-0440, then room number (8664485431)

Sequencing Technology

This working group is shared between ENCODE and modENCODE.

Goal: To address issues related to new sequencing technologies, including the evaluation of existing platforms and protocols, the development of experimental protocol/data standards, and new developments in this quickly-evolving field.
