With more than 6000 scientists (genetics, bioinformatics, clinicians, statistics, genetic counselor…) and more than 200 companies at Boston for this year’s American Society for Human Genetics conference, there is a lot of great science to catch up on.
Very quickly, I just pulled out the selected platform talk abstracts, and the poster abstracts (too many posters, so I simply picked my biased interest of ~260 Bioinformatics ones) and made these tag-clouds to get the popular keywords.
They are very similar! While the Bioinformatics posters have a lot of DATA, coverage and quality; the platform talks have a lot of CANCER, functional and mutations. The platform talks also have a lot of neandertal, pms and mutation. Looking forward to all the excitement!!
Tools & Parameters: TagCrowd to generate the cloud using text from PDF files on the ASHG website. Max 77 words to show, min frequency of 5 and excluding these keywords “boston cambridge chr ma united university”.
