Description: : ************ Due to the American government partial shut down, the BioCompute Workshop 2019 originally scheduled for March 25th has been postponed. Details regarding the new date and time will be posted here and on the About page of the public facing BioCompute website ( as the details are allowed to be released. ************ BioCompute is a community driven project to build a framework to standardize bioinformatics computations and analyses communication. This can be achieved by using the BioCompute Object (BCO). BCO aims to facilitate bioinformatic workflow related exchange and communication between regulatory agencies, pharmaceutical companies, bioinformatics platform providers and researchers. To read more about this framework please see the BCO specification document and publications located under the "Links to Project Website and Resources". Many people from a variety of institutions came together to form the BioCompute Consortium to create these documents that outlines the BioCompute paradigm. BioCompute project is funded by FDA. ---------------------------------- BioCompute Submission The BioCompute project is a community consensus-driven framework to standardize high-throughput sequencing (HTS; also called NGS) computations and analyses. This project is funded by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and its continued growth and development occur, in large part, through technical discussion between FDA and stakeholders from industry and academia. By engaging in technical discussions with these stakeholders, the FDA advances the BioCompute project, and all stakeholders benefit by helping to shape the BioCompute paradigm. BioCompute was conceived to allow more efficient and effective communications of complex computational analyses between interested parties. One application includes communications between FDA reviewers and sponsors. For sponsor’s developing multiple products, based in part on NGS data, requiring FDA approval or vendors who perform NGS analyses for multiple companies using the same NGS analysis pipeline, a BioCompute Object (BCO) can be submitted to the agency as a Drug Master File (DMF) that can then be referenced with each new submission or product using the same analysis pipeline. Using the DMF, a sponsor or vendor can protect the confidentiality of their analysis pipeline while providing the FDA all of the information necessary for an informed regulatory decision. Disclaimer: Although the BioCompute project is funded by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it is not a FDA requirement. Technical discussions is encouraged to provide feedback on the scientific or technical merit of the BCO concept. These discussions will not be used in regulatory decision-making. Individual technical discussions with FDA regulatory scientists tied to specific submission should follow existing protocols set by your institution and FDA. =========================================================================== *************************************** ** IEEE P2791 Working Group Meeting Info ** *************************************** JOIN WEBEX MEETING Meeting number (access code): 732 517 173 Host key: 715258 Meeting password: biocompute JOIN FROM A VIDEO SYSTEM OR APPLICATION Dial You can also dial and enter your meeting number.
