San Francisco, CA – March 18, 2015.  Station X will be presenting with Atul Butte's Lab at the AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Sciences held in San Francisco, California on March 23-27, 2015. The team has been selected to present their collaborative submission to the Translational Bioinformatics Design Challenge.

The meeting organizers have identified that the growing abundance of omic and phenotypic data needs suitable tools to increase access, integration and use by the broader research community. Applications that integrate different types of data through publicly available data repositories provide support for and advancement of translational research. To this end, the organizers posed the following design challenge: "For the purpose of supporting translational research to improve our understanding of disease, develop an original framework, rapid prototype or working application for clustering phenotypic and omic information. This should be done, minimally, with respect to Lung Adenocarcinoma (LUAD) and Lung Squamous Cell Carcinoma (LUSC) cancers obtained from The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA). Although this is a specific application to lung cancer within TCGA, solutions that can be generalized to other cancers/diseases and repositories are preferred."

Hua Fan-Minogue, M.D., Ph.D. (Postdoctoral Fellow, Stanford School of Medicine), Dexter Hadley, M.D., Ph.D. (Engineering Research Associate, Stanford School of Medicine) and Sandeep Sanga, Ph.D. (VP Products & Services, Station X) will be presenting "GenePool: A Cloud-Based Platform for Interactive Visualization and Integrative Analysis of Genomics and Clinical Data" during the Translational Bioinformatics Design Challenge on Tuesday, March 24th, 2015 from 3:30 to 5:00pm at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco.
