Watch the GATK4 launch event recording on YouTube

Two weeks ago, for the official release of GATK version 4.0, we held a live online event that was both a launch party and a comprehensive if condensed overview of everything that's new in GATK4. Over the course of two hours, members of the GATK development team and a great lineup of external guests gave presentations about the new capabilities, discussed their implications in small panels and answered questions from the online audience.

I had the privilege of serving as host -- and unintentional comic relief, between forgetting panelists and bumping into the set furniture -- so I'm probably biased, but I'd say it was the most fun-yet-informative event we've done so far on GATK. Not that we do a lot of events -- and it's mostly just workshops -- but this felt pretty special. We had a great time doing it, and lots of people showed up to watch and ask questions. So we're now considering doing others in a similar vein, though they would each be focused on a specific topic and have more time for answering questions from the online audience. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, let us know in the comments!

Anyway, the recording of the full event is now available on YouTube, and you can always find it again on our Presentations page.
