DNAdigest Surveys the BioData World Congress Attendees

On 21-22 October DNAdigest attended the BioData World Congress 2015 held at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus in Hinxton. Founder and CEO Fiona Nielsen not only attended the majority of the talks over the two day event, but also took part in the Open Innovation panel and played the role of Amy Friedman in the ‘Genomics in Play’ drama. Additionally, DNAdigest had a stand in a prime location at the event, which was manned by volunteers Craig Smith and Charlotte Whicher. If you’re interested in what people were talking about on Twitter at the conference – you can read the DNAdigest BioData World Congress Storify complete with pictures of presentations from guest speakers and various quotes from talks. Thanks to some strategically placed sweets, we were able to talk to lots of the attendees as well as some of the guest speakers including Dr Robert Green (Harvard Medical School), Dr Bob Rogers (Intel Corporation) and Dr Niklas Blomberg (ELIXIR). During the event, we conducted a short online survey on the genomic data searching / accessing / sharing habits of the attendees and speakers. In exchange for completing the survey we gave away DNAdigest Mugs and T-shirts to 6 lucky winners. Our survey consisted of 3 simple multiple choice questions: The results speak for […]

Survey: Genomic Data Access and Sharing

How do you make genomic data available? Genomic research is progressing more rapidly than ever before, as are the workflow habits and preferences of researchers. The question regarding the sharing of genetic data is the one that we at the DNAdigest team are trying very hard to answer. In order to gain an insight in to how researchers access and share genomic data, we have launched a survey that will ultimately further our aim of advancing genomic research by promoting efficient and ethical data sharing. So if you are a researcher who uses human genomic data and you are directly affected by the difficulties of accessing and sharing this data, it will be highly appreciated if you take part in DNAdigest’s survey. You can also have a say here and help us find out what the biggest problems regarding it are. DNAdigest Survey is online now! The Survey has a unique functionality which will allow you to go through it very quickly. It will not take more than 4-5 minutes of your time for filling it in. The outcomes will be published and shared with genomic research community, but your individual responses will be kept confidential. Thank you a lot in advance for your responses! Your participation is […]
