International Workshop "Algorithmics, Bioinformatics and Statistics for NGS data analysis"
Workshop booklet to print (contains directions, schedule, abstracts of talks and posters)
When: June 22-23, 2015
Where: Curie Institute, Paris. Directions to Workshop venue.
In the last years, high-throughput sequencing technologies (NGS: Next-Generation Sequencing) became a dominant tool in almost all kinds of genomics studies: gene expression, copy number variation, methylation, protein-DNA and DNA-DNA interactions, and many others biological questions. The Workshop, organized by ABS4NGS project, will bring together scientists working in biology, bioinformatics, computer science and statistics in order to present and discuss recent advancements in the analysis of NGS data. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes genome sequencing and reconstruction, analysis of transcriptional landscape, models of epigenomics, and other computational and statistical tools recently proposed by the research community.
The workshop will cover both methodological issues of NGS data analysis and biological questions that can be answered through the analysis of high throughput sequencing datasets. Planned invited speakers include computational scientists, bioinformaticians, molecular biologists and clinicians working with NGS data. Workshop topics will include:
The two-days program will include invited talks as well as presentations by members of ABS4NGS project. In addition, there will be a contributed poster session where participants will present their work in an interactive mode.
