Massive Analysis and Quality Control Society.
The objective of the MAQC Society is to communicate, promote, and advance reproducible science principles and quality control for analysis of the massive data generated from the existing and emerging technologies in solving biological, health, and medical problems. Thus, the goals of the Society are to
(1) advocate and facilitate the development and application of quality control practice and standard analysis protocols of bioinformatics and biostatistics for enhanced reproducibility across multiple experiments, laboratories, and data analysis methods, and
(2) advance our understanding and best practices in the analysis of massive data from emerging technologies applied in drug development, clinical application, and safety/risk assessment.
Every Tuesday 11AM ET from Feb 16 – April 20, 2021

The 2021 MAQC Society annual meeting is April 28-30, 2021. This year, due to COVID-19, we will have a virtual meeting. The MAQC Society officers are working diligently with a sister organization, MCBIOS, to offer a joint meeting (MCBIOS meets April 26-28, and we will have joint sessions on April 28). You can register now at (MCBIOS/MAQC annual meeting), but we suggest you first register as a member of the MAQC Society here (apply membership). From there, you will get a code that will allow for free registration at the joint meeting
Look for more announcements regarding the annual meeting at this site and also at the conference web site.
