BD2K-LINCS Data Science Symposium 1/31-2/2/18

BD2K-LINCS Data Science Symposium | Jan 31 – Feb 2, 2018 | Miami, FL

Studying Systems Biology by Cellular Perturbations

The BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center (DCIC) and the University of Miami present the third annual BD2K-LINCS Data Science Symposium (DSS 2018) on January 31 – February 2, 2018.

This annual symposium brings together experts in systems biology, data science, drug discovery and translational medicine from academia, industry and government to present their latest research and exchange new ideas and approaches in data driven biomedical research. The general theme of the Symposium is the study of complex biological systems using large-scale cellular perturbation profiling and applications in drug development, translational biomedicine and environmental health. Talks will address a range of issues related to leveraging Big Data in translational research including integration, visualization, access, sharing, and reuse of data, software tools and the emerging NIH Big Data ecosystem. The program also provided a survey of data science research pertaining to BD2K (Big Data to Knowledge) and LINCS (Library of Network-Based Cellular Signatures) consortia.

The Symposium is organized by the BD2K-LINCS DCIC, a center jointly funded by NIH BD2K and LINCS programs (U54 HL127624) and with support from the Center for Computational Science and the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.  The objective of the DCIC is to apply state of the art data science principles and methods in stewarding, integrating and analyzing data generated by the LINCS project and relevant related resources.
