Learn about the Diabetes Epigenome Atlas at this week's webinar

Because integration with other data types can bring more meaning to genetic association data and spark insights into disease, we are working to develop connections between the Type 2 Diabetes Knowledge Portal (T2DKP) and the Diabetes Epigenome Atlas (DGA).  Learn more about this effort in our upcoming webinar at noon EDT on Thursday, September 26. We’ll demonstrate the current and planned connections between the T2D Knowledge Portal and DGA, and our guest speakers Kyle Gaulton and Parul Kudtarkar from DGA will provide an overview of the data and tools in the DGA resource.

This session may be attended as an online webinar (connection information below) or in person at the Broad Institute in the Cascades meeting room (11031) on the 11th floor of the 75 Ames St. building. We'll record the session and make it available on the T2DKP and on the Broad Institute YouTube channel for future viewing.

We hope you will attend and bring your questions and suggestions!

Future dates for our T2DKP Webinar Series:

Thursday, November 14, 2019
Thursday, January 16, 2020
Thursday, March 12, 2020

All events will take place at 12 noon Eastern time. We will send more details about each webinar as it approaches.

Learn about the T2D Knowledge Portal at #EASD2019

The Type 2 Diabetes Knowledge Portal team will be exhibiting next week at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) conference in Barcelona. Please stop by our booth (M07) to get a hands-on tutorial and let us know which data and features would be most useful to your research.

We'll have team members there both from the T2DKP Federated Node at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) and from the AMP T2D Data Coordinating Center (DCC) at the Broad Institute.  The Federated Node allows data that may not leave Europe due to privacy regulations to be queried remotely and securely via T2DKP tools and interfaces. Researchers anywhere in the world may browse and query data from either location, without even needing to know where the datasets reside. Stop by the booth and talk with us about adding your results to the T2DKP!
