The annual AMSI BioInfoSummer event will be held in December at Monash University in Melbourne. Running over a week, BioInfoSummer 2017 will give attendees the opportunity to be involved at every level; from hands-on introductory workshops for beginners through to specialist lectures from international speakers together and some of Australia’s top scientists and academics.
Hosted this year by Monash University (Caulfield Campus), BioInfoSummer introduces bioinformatics and mathematical and computational biology to advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, and professionals working in the fields of mathematics, statistics, computer science, information technology, complex systems analysis, and biological, chemical and medical sciences and engineering.
The symposium will cover areas of data visualisation, RNA-seq theory and practice, proteomics and metabolomics data, clinical bioinformatics and variant calling for disease, and single-cell genomics.
As part of BioInfoSummer there will be a public lecture from Prof John Mattick discussing “Genomics, big data and the future of medical Research and healthcare”.
COMBINE is also helping to organise a careers panel as part of the program. For more details and registration head to bis.amsi.org.au/.
