opportunity: “Submissions now being accepted for EMGS Bioinformatics Challenge 2021”
Description: Attention computer scientists, bioinformaticians, data scientists, genome scientists, and environmental toxicologists! We are now accepting submissions for the EMGS Bioinformatics Challenge 2021. We are currently seeking abstracts in any one of the following three areas:

(1) Novel computational approaches including machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) on high-throughput, high-content, exposure-risk assessment, and/or clinical data classification.
(2) Genetic/genomic toxicological applications of model organism databases, including EcoCyc E. coli database, Saccharomyces genome database, WormBase, wFleaBase, Xenbase, and ZFIN.
(3) Predictive modeling with genomic/mutation/epimutation datasets, and/or toxicology databases, including Tox21/ToxCast, Drug Matrix, TG-Gates, Comparative Toxicogenomics Database, and SeqAPASS.

Please submit a 250-word abstract with a data visualization or conceptual workflow pipeline to bioinformatics@emgs-us.org by February 28th, 2021.

Please visit the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS) website for more information about this opportunity.

webinar: “Advancing Racial Equity Webinar Series: Environmental Racism”
Description: Alarming disparities within the COVID-19 pandemic — such as higher hospitalizations and death rates among African Americans — are sadly predictable and highlight the urgent need to address the root causes of health inequities. APHA is hosting this webinar series to give an in-depth look at racism as a driving force of the social determinants of health and equity.

This series is exploring efforts to address systems, policies and practices designed to limit and shape opportunities for people of color. Our presenters are highlighting collective and individual actions we can take to advance racial equity and justice.

webinar: “Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD)/Nonattainment New Source Review (NNSR) Applicability – Part 2 – Baseline and Applicability Analyses. ”
Description: Applicability analyses for air permitting can be daunting. What do baseline, projected actual, and potential mean? It can be difficult to navigate and make sure the Air Quality Division has all the information in your application necessary to review your request. Join us to get some tips and information about what to include as well as what you could expect during our review.

webinar: “Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD)/Nonattainment New Source Review (NNSR) Applicability – Part 1 – Best Available Control Technology (BACT) and NNSR”
Description: Wow! That is a lot of acronyms! With recent changes in attainment status for ozone, non-attainment new source review applications have been received along with PSD applications. Join Air Quality Division staff to discuss PSD and Non-attainment New Source Review. We will discuss the differences and commonalities between the two. Also, provide some tips on what to include in your application.
