BioInfoSummer 2013 Wrap Up

 In News


A record number of expert medical researchers, statisticians, biologists and computer scientists attend BioInfoSummer 2013 at University of Adelaide to discuss state-of-the-art technologies used in medical and biological research.

The scene was set with an introductory lecture ‘Bioinformatics before, during and after the era of genomics’ given by Terry Speed, the 2013 Prime Minister’s Prize for Science recipient. Terry is an eminent statistician with strong ties to AMSI and he has been involved in every BioInfoSummer to date, he saw this year’s gathering as a particular standout.

The following days were designed to engage participants with the cutting-edge technologies used in bioinformatics research in the following areas:

Evolutionary Biology
Systems Biology
Next Generation Sequencing Coding
Algorithms for Bioinformatics

Each afternoon computing sessions were held, which were extremely popular among participants. The real data sets provided them with an opportunity to consolidate what they had been exposed to throughout the day. All speakers were leading researchers from Australia and overseas. With experience ranging from diabetes research, phylogeny and molecular evolutionary studies to discovering genetic disorders through data analysis.
