Default Data-Intensive Computing in Biology, 6-8 Feb 2012, Daresbury UK

Data-Intensive Computing in Biology

February 6th - 8th 2012 at the STFC Daresbury Laboratory, Warrington, WA4 4AD, UK

A major theme of modern biology is the quantity and wealth of data available: the data deluge. Biologists need to be able to handle very large datasets, and to extract useful information and derive knowledge. Example applications include sequencing, metagenomics, proteomics, imaging and neuroscience. This workshop will look at the computational challenges in data-driven biology. It will bring together computer hardware and infrastructure experts with scientists involved in challenging data-driven disciplines. We will cover scientific challenges, instrumentation, computational platforms, data standards, and scaleability of current applications.

Please apply via the web site. Places are limited. Registration is free for this event, but participants are responsible for their own accommodation and travel.

Organised by Martyn Winn and Jonathan Follows (STFC Daresbury Laboratory), Chris Rawlings (Rothamsted Research), Mario Caccamo (The Genome Analysis Centre), Paul Flicek (European Bioinformatics Institute).
