The workshop Statistical Genomics and Data Integration for Personalized Medicine will take place in Ascona between May 12, 2013 and May 17, 2013.
The Bertinoro Computational Biology meeting on Computational Cancer Genomics will take place Sep 8-13.
Advances in biotechnology have made genome-scale measurements routine. A significant challenge now is to use the vast amount of data generated from these technologies to improve human health. Medicine and drug development has moved from a `one-drug-for-all’ paradigm to more individualized treatment. Personalized medicine is a rapidly developing discipline that aims to improve health outcomes based on highly refined characteristics of individual patients, such as serum biomarkers, genotype, gene expression pattern, and imaging.
This interdisciplinary workshop is intended to be a forum for (i) the dissemination of cutting-edge biotechnological and methodological developments and (ii) the identification of open data analysis problems. Targeted areas for the workshop include: novel clinical trial designs for personalized medicine; statistical and machine learning methods for identifying reproducible biomarkers and genomic signatures, and for risk and outcome prediction; new strategies for analysis and integration of heterogeneous, high-dimensional data types (e.g., microarray, genotype, imaging and sequence data); applications to disease prevention, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy, especially in cancer and infectious diseases (e.g., HIV, HCV); and advances in statistical computing for these problems.
