CoDE Lab visits Seven Bridges Genomics

26 Sep

After the Summer CoDE Program ended, we had the opportunity to visit Seven Bridges Genomics (https://www.sbgenomics.com/) here in San Francisco for an academic tour. It was a great experience seeing how bioinformatics is used in the industry!

Seven Bridges is a cloud-based company that offers different apps they have created to store, analyze, and interpret bioinformatic data. Some examples of the apps they offer are: RNA-Seq alignments (TopHat), whole genome analysis, ChimeraScan and more.

At Seven Bridges, we met a few of their bioinformaticians and they showed us what they have been working on and how we as students can use their apps and tools in our projects. Marion, Kadie, and Olivia each gave a brief presentation on their research and the summer students Kayla, Gabriella, and Abdul presented their posters on questions they were interested in using R to analyze data.
