Alberta Epigenetics Network Bioinformatics & Computational Biology Workshop

Alberta Epigenetics Network(AEN) in partnership with Pacific Institute of Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), is organizing a workshop November 24, 2017 at University of Calgary, which would:

  • 1.       Provide researchers and industry partners a platform to share current knowledge & trends, expertise, resources, and challenges in the area of:
    • a.       Computational biology
    • b.       Bioinformatics and
    • c.       Artificial Intelligence
  • 2.       Discuss multidisciplinary collaborations for the development of next generation of Computational tools to study biological systems, manage and analyze large amounts of data

Advances in OMICS research is creating health-related data of unprecedented size and complexity, which has led to the development of new Computational, Data-analysis and Theoretical tools for simulation, modelling and analysis of complex genomics data to helps better understand the associated biology. Significant progress in Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have further helped develop predictive models to support personalized health for diagnosis, treatment and prevention, and to reduce healthcare cost.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers and industry partners in computational biology, bioinformatics, mathematics, AI/deep learning and health informatics. The workshop hopes to stimulate innovative and transformative collaborations that would enable novel translational research.
