ISCB Supports National Institutes of Health Interim Research Products Policy Change


Open access to data, software and publications enables scientific progress and is a core and foundational principle of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). ISCB was delighted to learn of and fully supports The National Institution of Health’s policy, which allows investigators to cite their interim research products, such as preprints, and claim them as products of NIH funding.
 
Pre-print servers have emerged as a rapid and important means for molecular and computational biologists to make their data and discoveries widely available prior to publication in peer-reviewed journals. ISCB’s two affiliated journals, Bioinformatics and PLOS Computational Biology, have for years encouraged the submission of papers previously deposited in pre-print servers.
 
The availability of these data forms are the basis of our ability as computational biologists to mine and integrate data from several sources in order to make new discoveries. This principle forms the basis of our professional activity as Bioinformatians and Computational Biologists and underlies our Society’s mission to advance understanding of living systems through computation and to communicate scientific advances worldwide.
 
ISCB is pleased to learn that the National Institutes of Health also sees the great value of interim research products and therefore strongly supports the recent policy change.  ISCB will continue to encourage the deposition of papers in pre-print servers, in the same way that we support the deposition of software and data in the appropriate repositories prior to publication in peer-reviewed journals.
 
It is, however, still largely misunderstood how important this data is and ISCB will continue to work towards educating other funding agencies on this matter.

2nd Interdisciplinary Signaling Workshop
Hungary - Pest County - Visegard
Jul 17, 2017 through Jul 21, 2017

Building successful interdisciplinary collaborations to address problems in cellular signaling is becoming increasingly important, as the size of datasets and diversity of different experimental approaches continues to increase. We have designed the program of this second Interdisciplinary Signalling Workshop to help support further development and deployment of such approaches, building on the success of the previous workshop.

5th RECOMB Satellite Workshop on Computational Methods in Genetics
Los Angeles - United States
Jul 27, 2017 through Jul 28, 2017

Over the last decade, large-scale, cost-effective availability of genotype data has led to novel analytical opportunities and computational challenges in statistical genetics. Population genetics allows more refined understanding of the demographic history of our species. Association analysis provides insights into the functional and molecular underpinnings of diseases and traits. Clinical applications suggest genetics is emerging as a trailblazer in personalized medicine. Complex bioinformatics questions arise, ranging from inferring more nuanced statistical models of genetic information to algorithms that overcome the complexity challenges of analyzing millions of SNPs across millions of individuals, to systems level challenges of handling such Big Data repositories of genotypes and phenotypes.

6th RECOMB Satellite Workshop on Computational Cancer Biology
Los Angeles - United States
Jul 28, 2017 through Jul 29, 2017

Cancer research is undergoing a revolution driven by the application of high-throughput techniques such as genome sequencing, single-cell analysis, miRNA profiling, and mass spectrometry. Today’s high-throughput techniques are capable of performing in-depth characterization of tumor samples and producing large collections of data that have implications for both basic biology and clinical translation. Cancer is a disease of tremendous complexity; thus, the analysis and interpretation of this data with a systems biology approach demands sophisticated, specialized computational methods. This workshop brings together leading researchers in the mathematical, computational and biological sciences to discuss advances and open questions in cancer research.
