The ATS Section on Genetics and Genomics, Assembly on Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology, and PhD and Basic and Translational Scientists Working Group are pleased to announce a webinar series focused on the LungMAP data resource.


The second webinar (LungMAP BREATH) is scheduled for January 29, 2019 at 3:00PM Eastern Standard Time.
We will be joined by Drs. Robert Clark (RTI International) and Yan Xu (Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center) who will conduct a live webinar presentation on LungMAP BREATH and Lung Gene Expression Analysis (LGEA) resource. They will present information on the types of data available in the LungMAP BREATH repository, and conduct live walk-throughs to demonstrate use of the BREATH web resource and LGEA to extract biologically useful information. Drs. Scott Palmer (Duke University), and Stephen Edwards (RTI International), Jeff Whitsett (Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center), Yina Du (Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center), and Tom Mariani (University of Rochester Medical Center) will also join as panelists for this discussion.

These sessions will be moderated by Drs. Katie Steiling (Boston University Medical Center) and Maor Sauler (Yale University). We will use a web-based platform, which allows real-time discussion both online and on the phone, making this an interactive journal club. Please use a landline phone or VoIP for the call. You will need to register for the webinar in order to participate in the journal club. We invite your participation for these sessions and look forward to insightful discussions. We currently organize monthly sessions, and welcome your proposals for interesting articles and/or presentations. Please contact your Assembly journal club coordinator with any suggestions/questions.
