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.
