Sessions by Day
Sessions by Track
From caCORE to TIGR, biological computational tools and techniques help researchers make sense of overwhelming amounts of information. These sessions reveal the latest tools, methods, and techniques to structure, visualize, and mine microbiological data.
We'll cover new ways to integrate and accelerate your research using the latest applications, focusing on Web services, XML schemas, hidden Markov models, and vector methods that deliver proven strategies for high-throughput analysis and visualization.
- Bioinformatics Overview
A major challenge to the field of bioinformatics lies in the storage and manipulation of life science data. The need for strong data integration methods and creative strategies has created some novel solutions. This track focuses on the solutions as well as the lessons learned in both academic and industrial settings, and how new regulations and standards can be applied to life science data.
- End-User Applications
You can't do meaningful work in life sciences without applications that make sense to end users. Whether you're a Perl programmer or a database freak, our tutorials provide solid grounding in essential methods for enhancing researchers' experience and results.
- System Administration and Infrastructure
These presentations reveal creative methods and techniques to build collaborative systems, the single most important challenge today in bioinformatics. You'll discover the best practices in setting up a collaborative environment for sharing infrastructure code and methodologies.
Bioinformatics.Org is pleased to hold its annual, one-day event at the O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology Conference. The program is open to all registered attendees and includes an introduction to Bioinformatics.Org, panel discussions, project presentations, and evening "Birds of a Feather" meetings.
The Interoperable Informatics Infrastructure Consortium is focused on accelerating life sciences discovery through software interoperability. The I3C track on Thursday, February 6 will present an update on the I3C technical work, including the LSID specification and new work areas that are forming. Speakers include members of the I3C Board and technical leaders of the I3C who can speak first-hand about the work in progress.
