Analysis of differential isoform usage by RNA-seq: statistical methodologies and open software
Workshop at ECCB'14, Strasbourg, France, 7th September 2014

RADIANT hosted a workshop at ECCB'14 bringing together leading researchers working on computational tools for exploring differential isoform usage. The aim of the workshop is to help method developers and users better understand the features of current tools and to explore different approaches to method benchmarking. For more information see the workshop page on the ECCB '14 website.

SIG Frontiers in Somatic Variant Calling, Workshop at the EMBL Cancer Genomics Conference
The RADIANT project sponsered a workshop at the EMBL Cancer Genomics Conferece in Heidelberg. The workshop brought together a small set of computational biologists directly involved in designing, benchmarking and applying somatic variant calling, and to exchange technical details and insights that tend to get smoothed over in larger meetings.
