Join us in Basel for [BC]2 2013
The 11th [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference 2013 on "Computational and Biological Perspectives on Human Genome Variation" will take place 4.-5. July 2013 at the Congress Center Basel, Switzerland:
Genetic Variation + Human Health
In the era of genome sequencing with low prices and high throughput, new challenges emerge with respect to the analysis and interpretation of genome variation. We are called to integrate not only information about the actual genome sequence but a variety of molecular and organismal phenotypic attributes. While the availability of such large amounts of data raises the level of excitement in the community, it also raises a number of concerns as to degree that the data are analyzed in an appropriate way and whether the enormous power by the large scale datasets translates into equivalent scale of biological discovery. Finally, the promise of major improvement in the medical practice as a result of the human genome hinges on the success of these efforts. In this context, the conference will address the current and future computational and biological challenges of field and how these challenges may be met.
