The Bioinformatics Quiz Show, with emcees Nathan Torkington and Lorrie LeJeune, pits teams of four players against one another in a fast-paced test of wits. Teams will compete for prizes by demonstrating their knowledge of the arcane, mundane, and inane. Questions will draw from bioinformatics, genetics, molecular biology, and computer science.
Registration for the quiz is now closed.
Wind down after the Tuesday sessions and mingle at this mixer designed to give attendees an opportunity to get acquainted with our Exhibitors and Sponsors. Enjoy quiet music, a drink, and hors d’oeuvers in the delightful Tucson twilight.
This talk explains how to adapt procedural programming languages (Perl and C++) to quantum computing and vice versa, with applications for prime generation, list membership testing, maxima and minima detection, fast searching and sorting, very fast string comparison, and winning the office football pool. All in constant time, without loops or recursion.
Along the way, we'll also touch on the anatomy of chocolate, parallel programming, motor racing, the Scottish vegan movement, ancient Latin, modern German, Mick Jagger's love life, the real risks of unsanctioned genetic manipulation, the men in the black vans, geek dating, winter sports, the secret of the humble potato, fashion modelling, the prevention of cruelty to animals, and the drinking, smoking, and brawling habits of physicists.
The O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology Conference will feature an informal poster session. This will not be a standard peer-reviewed poster event, but rather a relaxed opportunity for attendees to learn about each others' work, and to meet face-to-face. Participation is open to all speakers and registered attendees of the conference.
To participate in the poster session, please submit your poster idea on our entry form.
