AMSI Summer Symposium in Bioinformatics

Date & Venue: 3–7 December 2012; University of Adelaide, South Australia

BioInfoSummer is a major annual bioinformatics educational and outreach event in Australia, bringing together in excess of 150 biologists, statisticians and bioinformatics professionals.

AMSI logo Bioinformatics creates biological information and knowledge by the acquisition, archiving, integration, analysis and interpretation of biological data. Biotechnology, drug development, medicine, cancer research, agriculture and plant science are just a few of the many areas in which bioinformatics is having a massive impact.

This year, the program will feature major themes in:

  • DNA bioinformatics
  • Proteomics
  • Computational Biology
  • Programming for Biologists
