Exhibitors - ISMB 2016
COSIs are Communities of Special Interest. They have been built around major research themes within computational biology, or important activities such as networks of training, mentoring or support. COSIs hold regular meetings usually as SIGs or workshops in the main ISMB meeting. The ISCB COSI Connect web-portal displays information on COSI themes and activities.
The booth will showcase the ISCB Affiliates program, which links ISCB and regional non-profit membership groups, centers, institutes and networks within specific geographic regions. Come to learn about the meetings and activities of ISCB's current Affiliates, and to discuss the possibility of affiliating your regional group with ISCB.
ISCB Student Council (SC, www.iscbsc.org) is an international network of young researchers in the broader disciplines of the field of Computational Biology. SC provides opportunities for networking, career enhancement and skills development for the next generation of Computational Biology leaders. The SC Symposium (symposium.iscbsc.org) is organized as a part of the annual ISMB conference with student presentations, keynotes, panel discussions and a poster session. Come visit our friendly SC representatives at the booth for more information.
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) (www.iscb.org) was the first and continues to be the only society representing computational biology and bioinformatics worldwide. ISCB serves a global community of nearly 3,400 scientists dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation by:
- convening the world’s experts and future leaders in top conferences
- partnering with publications that promote discovery and expand access to computational biology and bioinformatics
- delivering valuable information about training, education, employment, and relevant news
- providing an influential voice on government and scientific policies that are important to our members
ISCB has three official journals – OUP Bioinformatics, PLOS Computational Biology and F1000Research ISCB Community Journal, and has affiliations in place with several other publications for the benefit of our members.
F1000Research is an Open Science publishing platform offering immediate publication of posters, slides and articles with no editorial bias. All articles benefit from transparent peer review and the inclusion of all source data. F1000Research publishes the ISCB Community Journal.
The EMBL Australia Bioinformatics Resource (EMBL-ABR) is a distributed national research infrastructure providing bioinformatics support to life science researchers in Australia. It was set up as a collaboration with the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) to maximise Australia’s bioinformatics capability. This close partnership is made possible in the context of Australia’s associate membership of EMBL. Its Hub is hosted at VLSCI through a funding agreement between the University of Melbourne and Bioplatforms Australia.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides life sciences and genomics organizations with secure, reliable, low-cost, easy-to-scale, global IT infrastructure “in the cloud.” Hundreds of thousands of customers in 190 countries, rely on AWS for their bioinformatics needs, whether it is working with large public data sets or conducting clinical research that combines medical records with genomic information at population scale.

At the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), we help scientists realise the potential of ‘big data’ in biology, helping them exploit complex information to make discoveries that benefit mankind. We manage the world’s public biological data and make it freely available to the scientific community via a range of services and tools, perform basic research and provide professional training in bioinformatics. We are part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), a non-profit, intergovernmental organisation funded by 21 member states and two associate member states. Our 570 staff represent 57 nationalities, and we welcome a regular stream of visiting scientists throughout the year. We are located on the Wellcome Genome Campus in Hinxton, Cambridge in the United Kingdom.

The scope of the sbv IMPROVER project, funded by PMI, is the verification of methods and concepts in systems biology research. It already successfully demonstrated that crowdsourcing is a viable strategy to verify scientific methods and concepts in an industrial context. The latest challenge is the Systems Toxicology Computational Challenge and aims to to verify that robust gene signatures predictive of exposure status to chemical mixtures can be extracted from blood gene expression data.
NDEx, the Network Data Exchange, is a collaborative software infrastructure for storing, sharing and publishing biological network knowledge. The NDEx Project maintains a free, public website and is developed in close collaboration with the Cytoscape team and the Ideker laboratory at UC San Diego.
Cambridge University Press is a not-for-profit organization that advances learning, knowledge and research worldwide. It is an integral part of the University of Cambridge and for centuries has extended its research and teaching activities through a remarkable range of academic and educational books and journals.
PLOS (Public Library of Science) is a nonprofit Open Access publisher, innovator and advocacy organization dedicated to accelerating progress in science and medicine by leading a transformation in research communication. The PLOS suite of influential journals contain rigorously peer-reviewed Open Access research articles from all areas of science and medicine.
GOBLET’s mission is to provide a global, sustainable support and networking structure for bioinformatics educators/trainers and students/trainees. This includes a training portal for sharing materials, tools and techniques; guidelines and best practice documents; opportunities to train the trainers; and a community of individuals actively engaged in bioinformatics training and learning).
