W2 – BioNetVisA: from biological network reconstruction to data visualization and analysis in molecular biology and medicine




Workshop details

Date: Sunday September 9, 2018

Time: 9:00 – 17:00

Venue: TBA

Abstract submission deadline: July 6, 2018


Workshop website: https://bionetvisa.github.io/



BioNetVisA workshop brings together different actors of network biology from database providers, networks creators, computational biologists, biotech companies involved in data analysis and modeling to experimental biologists, clinicians that use systems biology approaches. The participants are exposed to the different paradigms of network biology and the latest achievements in the field.

The goal of BioNetVisA workshop is to build a discussion around various approaches for biological knowledge formalisation, data integration and analysis; compatibility between different methods and biological networks resources available the field; applicability for concrete research and clinical projects depending on scientific question and type of high-throughput data.
