Industries, especially those involved in marketing sequencing platforms and informatics, have a considerable role to play in helping to deliver data standards. Primarily the GSC envisages this role to be through the directed delivery of workflows and SOPs relating to sequence production and analysis. Importantly, they could take a lead on providing a route map for the collection of metadata associated with ‘omic-projects. This panel provides a forum for representatives from industrial sponsors of GSC9 to provide their take on GSC activities and the role of industry in the development of data standards. The panel will also be open to community questions and interaction following the presentations.
The panelists are: Asim Siddiqui - SOLiD, David Dailey – Illumina, Jim Knight - 454, Brian Bramlett – Lux Bio Group, Justin Johnson - EdgeBio and Saul Kravitz – CLC-Bio
