We look forward to hearing how you are using Golden Helix software in your clinical or research work!
Golden Helix strives to enable precision medicine by developing powerful software to support researchers and clinicians with complex analysis. One of my favorite events of the year is our abstract competition. This competition allows us to help our community by recognizing innovative ways to conduct a genomic analysis. I am pleased to announce that our 2019/20 Abstract Competition has officially begun!
We would love to hear your story:
- How do you leverage the ACMG or AMP guidelines into your clinical workflow?
- Do you use NGS analysis to treat patients?
- Do you have a particular disease category-focused? Or are you zeroing in on a specific population?
- Do you work with CNVs?
- How do you leverage our research platform for plants, animals or humans?
We’re interested in your clinical or research work. We intend to showcase the winner’s abstract as part of our global webinar series; this is an excellent opportunity to gain exposure as we have hundreds of attendees from a worldwide audience. On top of this, first place will be receiving a laptop with a one-year license of either VarSeq or SVS. The second and third place winners will receive a one-year license of VarSeq or SVS based on their individual preference.
Last year’s competition
As you might recall, last year’s competition was a huge success. We ended up with three great abstract winners. Each of our winners presented a webcast on their topic, if you missed these you can access the recording through the links below:
- First Place: Mark Trinder, University of British Columbia:
Enabling research translation: generating clinical genetic reports to improve the management of cardiovascular disease
- Albert Ferran, MSc, Reference Laboratory Genetics:
Clinical Validation of Copy Number Variant Detection by Next Generation Sequencing NGS
- Third Place: Brad Heins, University of Minnesota:
GWAS to Identify Genetics that Influence Calf Health from Holstein and Crossbred Dairy Cows and Calves
Submit your abstract for a chance to win!
This year’s competition will run from today, December 1st, 2019 to January 31st, 2020. You can find all of the details for this year’s competition here. We look forward to receiving your abstract and reading about your work! If you have any questions about the competition, do not hesitate to ask by emailing our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
