Million Veteran Program

Seeking Contribution to a Wiki-'Omics' and other important issues

Greetings all-

I am writing from the Cold Spring Harbor Lab, where I am in the 'Advanced Sequencing' program, led by Elaine Mardis (Washington University), Dick McCombie (CSHL), Mike Zody (Broad Institute) and others. We have a great course wiki, and I have the outline of one I would like to post for this group.

Meeting with Million Veteran Program researchers at Boston VA

I had a great discussion with Drs. Louis Fiore, Leornard DAvolio and other members of their team at MAVERIC. I presented a powerpoint about OSEHRA, what the objectives are in terms of Vista, and they were very suppotive and interested.

A next step will be to schedule a webinar or teleconference with the Boston-based MVP team so that they can better understand the architecture.
