Cancer Systems Genetics - Systematic Functional Annotation of Cancer Variants

The conference will be centered on the translation of basic research into clinical oncology. Current cancer genomics efforts are generating extensive catalogs of previously unrecognized somatic mutations of unknown functional relevance, presenting challenges and opportunities for the translation of genetic information into clinical practice. The aim of the conference is to assess the current state of the art for approaches to gain functional understanding of cancer variants.

Conference May 19 – 21, 2016. Abstract Submission Deadline: March 25, 2016

Invited speakers:

  • Michael Boutros, DKFZ
  • Claudia Scholl, NCT/DKFZ
  • Stefan Fröhling, NCT/HUMS
  • Wolfgang Huber, EMBL
  • Brenda Andrews, Toronto
  • Frank Buchholz, Dresden

Kinetics on the move
Workshop on Data for Computational Modeling

Do you work in the lab and always wonder what these bioinformaticians do with the data you generate? Would you like to use models to verify a hypothesis or test your experimental data? Then this workshop may be right for you.

The workshop focuses on the publication, curation, retrieval, and usage of kinetic data from the reaction kinetics database SABIO-RK and on the use of data in modeling. There will be experience reports from scientists who successfully used experimental data to formulate or verify biological hypotheses with the computer, and you will experience how experimental data can be used with computational models.

Ursula Kummer, Sven Sahle, Melanie Stefan, Julio Vera, Dagmar Waltemath, Ulrike Wittig
