Theme of Workshop
Bioinformatics and statistical genetics, twin themes of the long-running series of annual MASAMB meetings, have gained huge impetus from large-scale genome sequencing projects and development of high-throughput biological assay systems, including gene-expression microarrays. These immense data resources, and the underlying complexities of molecular and cell biology, provide exciting research opportunitities for numerate scientists.
With typically around 60-80 participants from mathematics, statistics, computer science, bioinformatics, biology and related fields, the MASAMB meetings provide an intimate setting for exchange of ideas in methodological and applied research. Research students and scientists newly entering the field of genomic research are particularly welcome.
The meeting will contain approximately 12 half-hour talks selected from participants' submissions, plus a poster session.
