From the CEO Desk
The Foundation enjoyed another very successful BioIT World 2016, including our Community Meeting at the Seaport Hotel. It was a wonderful event co-hosted with Thomson Reuters and the Pistoia Alliance and our first Corporate Sponsors GeneDx and Rancho Biosciences.
And we released the latest version of the tranSMART Platform, 16.1. That was quite a challenge for all involved as we implemented many process changes to improve the quality and discipline in our development and release processes. You can now install the platform with a single script which can take less than an hour to complete. They you can load any of the 100 datasets that we have collected again with usually a single script that is available on our wiki. If you are not impressed, you never tried to load the platform or data with a previous version. I have personally done it and I am very pleased with our progress!
But we still have a ways to go. We expect to the next version of the Platform to be released in the Fall, with several new or enhanced features, in particular the SmartR plugin. That version, 16.2, will benefit from our new processes and improving automated build and test platform. In addition, we have kicked off our first major project under the tranSMART Pro Alliance that will bring us v17.1 in 2017. That will include several significant new capabilities that we will describe in detail at the Annual Meeting in October.
Speaking of which, we are actively working on the 2016 Annual Meeting being held at UC San Diego on October 25-27. See the various links on this page to the emerging Agenda and exciting sessions we are organizing. Please register soon for the Meeting so that we can prepare for the event. I am sorry we had to put a fee in place for attendees but budgetary constraints made that necessary. We tried to keep the fees as low as we could and I hope you will agree. And do take advantage of the Early Bird 20% discount we put in place for those who register before Sept 12!
Enjoy the summer and I hope to see you at our Community and Foundation events in 2016!
