Conferences and Meetings on Genomics and Bioinformatics

EMBO | EMBL Symposium: From Single- to Multiomics: Applications and Challenges in Data Integration

Dates: 12 Jul 2017 → 14 Nov 2017

Location: Heidelberg, Germany

Abstract: The current speed at which novel high-throughput technologies are developed and large-scale biological data are produced offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges will be to interpret these large-scale biological “omics” data and to develop computational and statistical approaches to generate a coherent biological model that will enable us to address novel questions about the consequences of genetic and environmental perturbations in complex biological systems.

Topics: proteomics, genomics, metabolomics, structural biology.

GDVI — Genomic Data Visualization and Interpretation

Dates: 11 Sep 2017 → 15 Sep 2017

Location: Berlin, Germany

Abstract: The advent of rapid and relatively cheap massively parallel sequencing has dramatically increased the availability of genome, transcriptome, and epigenome profiling. Analysis workflows and published best practices are also now available to process raw sequence data into alignments, variant calls, expression estimates, etc., in relatively standardized file formats. Interpretation and visualization of these data, often consisting of thousands to billions of data points, and extracting biological meaning remains a serious challenge. In this workshop we will explore a number of best-in-class visualization tools, and provide working examples that demonstrate important principles of ‘omic interpretation strategies.


Topics: R, Bioinformatics.

EMBO | EMBL Symposium — The Mobile Genome: Genetic and Physiological Impacts of Transposable Elements

Dates: 11 Oct 2017 → 14 Oct 2017

Location: EMBL Heidelberg, Germany

Abstract: The meeting will stimulate interdisciplinary discussions on various key topics including the impact of mobile DNA on genome structure and evolution, novel advances in the mechanism of transposition and transposon defense as well as the developmental and physiological roles of transposition.


BIOINFORMATICS 2018 — 9th International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms

Dates: 19 Jan 2018 → 21 Jan 2018

Location: Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

Abstract: The purpose of the International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the application of computational systems, algorithmic concepts and information technologies to address challenging problems in Biomedical research with a particular focus on the emerging problems in Bioinformatics and computational biology. There is a tremendous need to explore how mathematical, statistical and computational models can be used to better understand biological processes and systems, while developing new methodologies and tools to analysis the massive currently-available biological data. Areas of interest to this community include systems biology, sequence analysis, biostatistics, image analysis, network and graph models, scientific data management and data mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, computational evolutionary biology, computational genomics and proteomics, and related areas.
