From Single- to Multiomics: Applications and Challenges in Data Integration

12 Nov, 2017 – 14 Nov, 2017 @ All Day – The current speed at which novel high-throughput technologies are developed and large-scale biological data are produced offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems. One of the biggest challenges will be to interpret these large-scale biological “omics” data and to develop computational and statistical approaches to generate a coherent biological model that […] [...]
