Cancer Bioinformatics Workshop

This Workshop was held 2nd-4th September 2010 with the following final programme. Some of the talks can be seen at the corresponding website.

Substantial amounts of data are being generated within cancer research. Datasets range from gene expression and microRNA array data through to next generation sequence data. Data interpretation draws on mathematical and computational skills and thus the subject has engaged the interest of researchers in areas such as machine learning, statistics, bioinformatics and computer science. The goal of this cross-disciplinary Workshop is therefore to bring together researchers from these disciplines and cancer researchers who have an interest in data analysis, to explore and present innovative approaches to this subject. Presented papers should:

  1. Propose novel data analysis methods applicable to this domain or:
  2. Present bioinformatics-driven studies in which mathematical or computational methods played an important role in finding results of potential significance in cancer research.

For novel data analysis methods, a non-exhaustive list of suitable topics include:

The Workshop is principally focused on the intepretation of omics datasets and does not cover related areas such as cancer imaging or development of software tools unless in the context of novel methodology. There is a planned associated edited volume (see link).
