In the area of computational biology and bioinformatics we are dealing with a growing range of genomic datasets, including microarray (e.g. mRNA, ChIP, SNP, CGH, and DNA methylation) and ultra high-throughput sequencing (e.g. mRNA-Seq and ChIP-Seq) data. An increasing number of biological studies involve the use of multiple high-throughput assays to comprehensively characterize different aspects of samples of interest.
Genomic data integration -- the process of statistically combining diverse sources of information from these experiments -- is becoming increasingly prevalent. In this workshop we will discuss opportunities and challenges in the joint analysis of multiple 'levels' of high-dimensional biological data. The programme consists of eight invited speakers from several institutions.
The workshop will be held on the 1st of March 2013 at Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus. The venue is 170 Queens Gate (SW7 5HF). Directions and maps are available here. The nearest tube station are South Kensington and Gloucester Road.
RegistrationThe workshop is free to attend but please send us an email to register.
The workshop is supported by an EPSRC grant.
