Description
 
Background and Aims

NETTAB 2013 is the thirteenth in a series of international workshops on Network Tools and Applications in Biology aimed at presenting and discussing emerging ICT technologies whose adoption in support of biology could be of particular interest. In the NETTAB 2013 workshop, mobile and/or social and/or semantic solutions for bioinformatics and laboratory informatics problems will be explored. A savvy combination of these three technologies could greatly enhance the research outcome of life scientists and markedly simplify the workflows in biomedical laboratories.
