8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

HANDOUT

Includes meeting agenda and poster abstracts

About

Revolutionary advances in biotechnologies, especially sequencing technology, has ushered biological research into a new era, with the focus rapidly shifting from single gene/protein to entire genomes and genome-wide networks of genes, proteins, metabolites, and epigenomic modifiers. The unprecedented growth in diverse biological data presents new opportunities as well as challenges that demand multi-disciplinary collaborations between biology, mathematics, statistics, computation and engineering.

While numerous UM scientists are already leaders in the computational Omics fields, through this meeting, we hope to build on the existing strengths by fostering new synergistic collaborations and contemplate future directions.

Participate

All University of Maryland students/postdocs/faculty interested in high throughput biology are welcome. Students/Postdocs are strongly encouraged to register and optionally contribute a poster.Registration is free but REQUIRED for attendance and limited to the first 150 registrants. The poster session is limited to 50 posters selected by the committee.
