AMSI BioInfoSummer 2018 would like to thank the following sponsors for their support:
The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) is the collaborative enterprise of Australia’s mathematical sciences. It exists to give independence to our disciplines and provide infrastructure so that we can take initiatives on the national and international stage.
The Department of Education and Training is responsible for national policies and programmes that help Australians access quality and affordable early child care and childhood education, school education, higher education, vocational education and training, international education and research.
The University of Western Australia (UWA) was established in 1911 as the State’s first university. It was also the first free university in the British Empire, actively promoting equal access to tertiary education for all social classes. More than 100 years later, the University is now home to four faculties, their attendant schools, and many research institutions and centres.
From our beginnings as a free-thinking university to the global centre for learning, teaching, research and industry we are today, Murdoch University has never lost sight of our purpose. With more than 23,000 students and 1,700 staff from across 90 different countries, we are proud to be recognised for the impact that our free-thinking graduates, life-changing research, and innovative campus and industry developments have made – both in Western Australia and around the world.
Established in 1991, Edith Cowan University (ECU) has grown rapidly into a quality university with excellent student satisfaction and internationally recognised research. The School of Science offers a diverse range of industry-relevant courses in the areas of computing, information science, security science, biology, environmental science, chemistry, mathematics and physics.
The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is encouraging and energising research using supercomputing, large scale data storage and visualisation in Western Australia. The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre is an unincorporated joint venture between CSIRO, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University and The University of Western Australia and is supported by the Western Australian and Federal Governments.
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.
Decode Science enables scientists to publish faster in higher impact journals, and commercialise with confidence by providing them with world leading products and best in class support. Decode Science provides Australian customers with high quality, leading edge technology matched with technical sales and applications support.
The Harry Butler Institute promotes high-quality teaching and research in the coexistence of business and biodiversity, with a focus on the oil and gas industry. Located at Murdoch University and founded in partnership with Chevron Australia, the institute’s initiatives include PhD programs and honors projects in biosecurity and environmental science; the development of an undergraduate bioeconomic curriculum; establishment of a Barrow Island Research Centre; ongoing advisory role for institute chair; science exchange programs and more.
The Australian Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Society Inc (ABACBS) is the national scientific and professional society and peak body for bioinformatics and computational biology in Australia. ABACBS aims to strengthen our science and profession,encourage and support students, provide representation and advocacy and promote interaction and awareness.
