BioInfoSummer 2012: AMSI Summer Symposium in Bioinformatics
12/03/2012 - 12/07/2012
Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, University of Adelaide
BioInfoSummer is a major annual bioinformatics event in Australia, bringing together in excess of 150 biologists, statisticians and bioinformatics professionals.
Bioinformatics creates biological information and knowledge by the acquisition, archiving, integration, analysis and interpretation of biological data. Biotechnology, drug development, medicine, cancer research, agriculture and plant science are just a few of the many areas in which bioinformatics is having a massive impact.
The program covers state-of-the-art technologies used in medical and biological research and also teaches fundamentals of data analysis.
