Ensembl in Dubai

This year the Human Genome Meeting has brought us to Dubai (in the United Arab Emirates) for a very interesting conference focusing on the genomics of human genetics. Ensembl is featured in one of the satellite events organised, The Open Door Workshop, offering us a unique opportunity to present the latest develoments in the project to participants from 12 countries (Australia, Brazil, India, Indonesia, Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sudan and obviously our host country UAE) with a broad range of interests ranging from clinical genomics to database management.

We have received very positive feedback on some of the latest goodies hidden in our favourite genome browser, such as the possibility of streaming BAM files to display NGS data alongside the Ensembl annotation (undoubtely we should be posting some tips on this very soon).
