16th Genome Informatics Conference 2016 Cambridge

  • Conference Call
  • This 16th Genome Infor­mat­ics con­fer­ence will take place on Sep­tem­ber 1922, 2016 in Cam­bridge, United King­dom and will focus on large-​scale approaches to under­stand­ing the struc­ture and biol­ogy of genomes. Biol­ogy is an exper­i­men­tal sci­ence that is expe­ri­enc­ing an explo­sion of new data. This requires biol­o­gists to increase the scale and sophis­ti­ca­tion of the infor­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy used for their research.

    The con­fer­ence scope encom­passes a wide range of meth­ods for the analy­sis of these data, includ­ing a focus on tech­nolo­gies such as variant-​calling, tran­scrip­tomic analy­sis, and vari­ant inter­pre­ta­tion, applied to very large genomic data sets. This meet­ing alter­nates between Hinx­ton, UK and Cold Spring Har­bor, New York.

    Sci­en­tific ses­sion topics

    • Per­sonal and med­ical genomics
    • Tran­scrip­tomics, alter­na­tive splic­ing and gene predictions
