Workshop A

Bioinformatics and Microarrays

19-20 June 2003

Starts at 1 p.m.

Symposium Home

Bioinformatics is an evolving science; defined as the generation, organization, and analysis of biological data (initially genomic), bioinformatics encompasses all biological phenomena. Not only is bioinformatics a vital support network for existing scientific investigations, it is also a rapidly changing, increasingly rich discipline marked by some of the most creative advances in biology. One of the most interesting and exciting advances includes microarray technologies that allow the simultaneous investigation of potentially every gene in an organism. The contributions of statisticians to the analysis of microarray data have had a significant impact on the biological community, and will act as one point of focus for this workshop. The purpose of this workshop is to build upon a deeply rooted foundation of statistical and quantitative genetics in order to identify new and upcoming ideas in bioinformatics (including microarrays). This workshop supports interaction and communication among scientists across many disciplines in both industry and academics. The organization of this workshop has been constructed to draw upon the knowledge and depth of statistical genetics, and to pave the way for future advances in bioinformatics.
