CEXS-UPF: Tutorial on DisGeNET platform at the European Conference on Computational Biology 2016


News from CEXS-UPF


We are pleased to announce the tutorial "DisGeNET: a discovery platform to support translational research on human diseases" at the European Conference on Computational Biology 2016. The tutorial will be held by Janet Piñero and Laura I. Furlong, postdoctoral researcher and head of the Integrative Biomedical Informatics group of GRIB (IMIM - UPF) respectively, on September the 4th, and is aimed at a variety of audiences: computational biologists, systems biology users, biologists, and healthcare practitioners.

DisGeNET is a discovery platform integrating information on gene-disease associations from several public data sources and the literature. DisGeNET integrates expert-curated databases with text-mined data, and it is one of the largest available repositories of its kind.

The ECCB 2016 will take place on 3-7 September and is jointly organized by the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences, the BioSB research school and ELIXIR, in association with the Vrij Universiteit Amsterdam and the Delft University of Technology. The ECCB 2016 will take place in the historic city of The Hague in the Netherlands. It is the main computational event in 2016 and will welcome scientists working in a variety of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, biology, medicine, and systems biology. Participating in ECCB 2016 will be the perfect opportunity to keep pace with cutting edge research, and to network with members of ECCB community.
