IBM's OpenPOWER Group is the organization that includes high performance computing (HPC) within the IBM Systems Group. This group is responsible for the strategy, marketing and identification of areas that can benefit from IBM's high end technology. The life sciences is such an area, and IBM is and will continue to bring valued solutions to life sciences.
IBM's Research is a partner with IBM's HPC and OpenPOWER on developing the next generation of high performance data centric computers. In addition, the Research Division has many groups investigating numerous application areas in collaboration with IBM's customers and partners in the life sciences. This includes IBM Research’s Data Centric Solutions and Computational Biology Center.
PatientsLikeMe is a free website where people with chronic health conditions get together and share their experiences living with disease. Where newly diagnosed patients can improve their outcomes by connecting with and learning from others who've gone before them. Where researchers learn more about what's working, what's not, and where the gaps are, so that they can develop new and better treatments.
SomaLogic® was founded in 2000 by Larry Gold, with the goal of improving the well-being and quality of life of every individual by transforming how diseases were detected and diagnosed. Building on the previous decade of aptamer research, SomaLogic scientists have developed a new proteomics technology that overcomes the significant challenges of current technologies, and which has multiple applications across the biological and medical sciences. Our mission is to leverage our proprietary technology to discover, develop and commercialize revolutionary new life science research tools and breakthrough clinical diagnostic products that will transform healthcare. - See more at: https://somalogic.com/About-Us/
ISCB works to maintain an environment that allows science and scientific careers to flourish through respectful, inclusive, and equitable treatment of others and is committed to providing a safe place for its members and nonmember participants. As a statement of principle, ISCB rejects discrimination and harassment by any means, based on factors such as ethnic or national origin, race, religion, citizenship, language, political or other opinion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, age, or economic class. In addition, ISCB opposes all forms of bullying including threatening, humiliating, coercive, or intimidating conduct that causes harm to, interferes with, or sabotages scientific activity and careers. Discrimination, harassment (in any form), and bullying create a hostile environment that reduces the quality, integrity, and pace of the advancement of science by marginalizing individuals and communities. It also damages productivity and career advancement, and prevents the healthy exchange of ideas.
Our goal is to foster a culture that creates a safe and open working environment for all who are participating in ISCB activities, conferences, and programs. While ISCB is not an adjudicating body, ISCB has appointed Ombudspersons who can be consulted, give advice or help seek out appropriate authorities to further handle any form of harassment or assault.
All conference delegates are also expected to adhere to the ISCB Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.

Welcome to the seventeenth annual Rocky Mountain Bioinformatics Conference, a meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). The organizers hope that you enjoy the program, and find the conference a productive opportunity to meet researchers, students and industrial users of bioinformatics technology.
The Rocky series began seventeen years ago as a regional conference, and has grown into an international program with a spotlight on regional development in the computational biosciences. The presenters of the Rocky conference are scientists representing a broad spectrum of universities, industrial enterprises, government laboratories, and medical libraries from around the world. The meeting is a chance to get to know your colleagues near and far, seek collaborative opportunities, and find synergies that can drive our field forward.
We hope you enjoy the science, the company, and the spectacular scenery of the Rocky Mountains. Welcome!
