Last year, as part of our ongoing commitment to empower genetic research, we hosted our first research competition. The competition was very successful and now we will make the competition an annual event.
Here at Golden Helix, we are dedicated to creating powerful software that enables researchers to complete complex analysis. This competition allows us to enable discovery by awarding software to those making an impact in the field.
This year’s competition will be much like last year’s – we will award a new laptop, software licenses, and the chance to present your work to the community in a live webcast. The one big difference is that this year, winners have the option to choose between two great software tools – SNP & Variation Suite (SVS) which is an integrated collection of powerful analytic tools for managing, analyzing, and visualizing multifaceted genomic and phenotypic dataor our new offering, VarSeq which streamlines the process of annotating and filtering variants obtained from next generation sequencing pipelines in order to find variants of interest in a very efficient and straightforward manner.
The contest will open on Monday, December 15th. Please look for more information from us in the coming days.
