On Monday 10 November 2014 the Amsterdam Institute for Molecules, Medicines and Systems (AIMMS) organizes the afternoon minisymposium:
“Cancer from a Data and Systems Perspective”
Today’s Life Sciences generate a variety of data (genomic, proteomic, metabolomic data, ligand binding data, protein structures, images etc.). In a time of Big Data, data scientists and data analysts, bioinformaticians, systems biologists and computational chemists / cheminformaticians need to work together with experimental biologists to turn the current data avalanche into useful knowledge.
This minisymposium, organized by Bas Teusink (Systems Bioinformatics) and Martine Smit (Medicinal Chemistry), brings experts from these fields together. It forms a prelude to an ambition to combine expertise in computer science with that of life and medical sciences, in what will become the (human) Life Science Node in the Amsterdam Data Science research center.
Check out the programme on the AIMMS website.
