2012 International Symposium on Integrative Bioinformatics
The 8th annual meeting
2nd-4th April, 2012, Hangzhou, China
Biological data are scattered across thousands of biological databases and hundreds of scientific journals. Current high throughput genomics technologies generate large quantities of high dimensional data. Microarray, NGS, NMR, mass spectrometry, protein chips, gel electrophoresis data, Yeast-Two-Hybrid, QTL mapping, gene silencing, and knockout experiments are all examples of technologies that capture thousands of data points, often in single experiments. The challenge for Integrative Bioinformatics is to capture, model, integrate, and analyse these data in a consistent way to provide new and deeper insights into complex biological systems.
This eighth meeting on Integrative Bioinformatics will be of interest to Bioinformaticians, Computer Scientists and those interested in finding out more about the developing area of integrative bioinformatics. There will be opportunities to present and discuss methods, theoretical approaches, and their practical applications. IB2012 is organized by Department of Bioinformatics, College of Life Sciences, Zhejiang University.
The main topics will be:
Please, put the date in your personal meeting calendars.
Selected full papers will appear in a special issue of the Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics and the abstracts will be available as printed conference proceedings.
The conference will feature a number of special events to help you enjoy your stay in Hangzhou and to give you insight into Chinese art, culture and history.
