Sign up here if you plan to attend the meeting!

What? Meet fellow bioinformaticians in Heidelberg, and discuss Communicating Bioinformatics

When? Thursday January 24th, 2013, 19.00 - 21.00

Where? 3-5, Building 2170, Groundfloor, Hörsaal 12a.

How? This time we will feature an interactive workshop run by EMBO Reports editor Sam Caddick called 'Making Science Make Sense'. During the workshop you can learn about communicating your research to the public – and also share your own experiences and thoughts on identifying audiences, communicating research and why (or why not) you might get involved in communication – and any other topics that you would like to discuss.

There will also be a return of 'flash talks' – very short presentations on a topic you find interesting. If you have something that you would like to present to fellow bioinformaticians, please put your idea forward ahead of the meeting. .

Who is organising it? A team of people working at several different life-science organisations within Heidelberg are organising HUB, with your help.

Who is coming? Check out the list of registered participants

Propose a Flash Talk

The list of flash talks are here.

Please take a look at the Guidelines.

Fitting high throughput data to a Boolean network model

  • Guy Karlebach
  • DKFZ - Heidelberg
  • Fitting between a high throughout dataset and a Boolean network model is an interesting problem with practical implications. In this flash talk I define the problem, analyze its complexity and present an algorithm for it.
  • The talk is based on the following paper

PhenoTimer: connecting time-resolved phenotypes

  • Maria Secrier
  • EMBL-Heidelberg
  • Connecting genetic and phenotypic information in the context of temporal variation is an ongoing challenge in systems biology. I will introduce PhenoTimer, a visualization tool for mapping time-resolved phenotypic links in a genetic context. Its capabilities in discovering dynamic regulatory patterns within the cell cycle and potential in identifying links between diseases will be illustrated.


COMPARTMENTS: A subcellular localization database

  • Janos Binder
  • EMBL - HD
  • We created a subcellular localization database by collecting curated annotations, text-mining 23 million PubMed abstracts and invoking predicition methods. Briefly I will also introduce DISEASES, a disease-gene associations database.
