Recently we updated the Aspen Biosciences(http://www.aspenbiosciences.com) website to make it more mobile friendly. In the process, we also added a new free service called Aspen Gene, that makes it easy to lookup gene, protein, and pathway related information. You can find out more about the service on our latest blog entry here: http://aspenbio.wordpress.com.

The service leverages the MyGene.info (http://www.mygene.info) web services created by +Chunlei Wu at the Su Lab at The Scripps Research Institute. I'd like to thank both Chunlei, and +Andrew Su for the work they've put into MyGene.info.

Precision medicine refers to the use of prevention and treatment strategies that are tailored to the unique features of each individual and their disease. In the context of cancer this might involve the identification of specific mutations shown to predict response to a targeted therapy. The biomedical literature describing these associations is large and growing rapidly. Currently these interpretations exist largely in private or encumbered databases resulting in extensive repetition of effort. Realizing precision medicine will require this information to be centralized, debated and interpreted for application in the clinic. CIViC (www.civicdb.org) is an open access, open source, community-driven web resource for Clinical Interpretation of Variants in Cancer. CIViC’s goal is to enable precision medicine by providing an educational forum for dissemination of knowledge and active discussion of the clinical significance of cancer genome alterations.

A hackathon and curation jamboree will be held as a pre-meeting of ASHG in collaboration with the ClinGen Somatic working group and hosted by the Scripps Research Institute. The focus of this meeting will be to continue to develop community consensus on data standards for interpretation of variants in cancer, engage software developers for improved functionality, and engage clinical experts for curation of content. Feedback from experts will be used to improve the ClinVar submission system as well as make improvements to the CIViC data model and user interface. Additional related topics will be proposed by meeting participants.

The Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN) is bringing together scientists who study the interactions between genomes and drug response. This symposium, organized by the PGRN and open to all ASHG attendees and others, explores current topics in pharmacogenomics with sessions on the role of genetics in drug development, pharmacogenetic implementation, multiple genome considerations and precision drug therapy. In addition, a joint session with ASHG on Day 2 will focus on drug development for rare genetic diseases and immunopharmacogenomics. We hope this symposium will help bridge the pharmacogenomics and genetics communities and enable scientists to identify new opportunities for advancing research in basic and translational pharmacogenomics.
