We meet the first Monday of the month from 12 pm – 1 pm at BRF2-1104 (UCSD – School of Medicine Campus – Biomedical Research Facilities 2 building).
CCBB’s Bioinformatics Seminar series is a monthly lunch series featuring local bioinformaticians discussing their tools, research, software, coding, etc. A light lunch will be provided.

October 7, 2019: Jordan Berg (Rutter Lab, U of Utah) will give a talk on “XPRESSyourself: Enhancing, Standardizing, and Automating Ribosome Profiling Computational Analyses Yields Improved Insights”.
Ribosome profiling, an application of nucleic acid sequencing for monitoring ribosome activity, has revolutionized our understanding of protein translation dynamics. While this technique has been available for a decade and is gaining more and more popularity, the current state of publicly available computational tools for these data is bleak. We developed XPRESSyourself, an analytical toolkit that eliminates barriers and bottlenecks associated with this specialized data type by standardizing, automating, and filling gaps in the computational toolset for both experts and non-experts of ribosome profiling alike.
