Systems Biology Data Science Symposium

Systems Biology Data Science Symposium, 1/19-20/2016

Join us for the first Systems Biology Data Science Symposium! The BD2K-LINCS DCIC and the University of Miami will host the two-day Systems Biology Data Science Symposium (SBDSS 2016) on January 19-20, 2016. Click here to add the event to your calendar.

The Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) consortium is a NIH Common Fund program to create a systems biology reference resource including a “library” of molecular signatures, such as changes in gene expression and other cellular phenotypes that occur when cells are exposed to a variety of perturbing agents, and computational tools for data integration, access, and analysis. The LINCS program consists of six LINCS Data and Signature Generation Centers and the BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center (DCIC), which operates in synergy with the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) consortium.

This first Systems Biology Data Science Symposium at the University of Miami will bring together the BD2K-LINCS DCIC, local researchers, and outside experts who apply or develop computational systems biology resources. In presentations of local experts, invited guests and our Center, a poster reception and several working sessions we want to show the tools/resources and scientific projects at the DCIC, connect developers with users, initiate new collaborations and to obtain feedback from expert and casual users of computational systems biology resources. Another important goal of our Center is outreach and education and we invite undergraduate/graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to participate in the Symposium.
