NSF EPSCoR Workshop in Bioinformatics
      to Foster Collaborative Research


March 3 - 5, 2013
Peabody Hotel and Clinton Presidential Library
Little Rock, AR

This NSF EPSCoR Bioinformatics Workshop will bring computational scientists together with life scientists to explore mathematical & computational modeling to solve real-world challenges in life sciences. The main goal of this workshop is to stimulate and foster research collaborations not only among bioinformatists but also between bioinformatists and life science researchers.

The workshop will focus on four rapidly growing areas in bioinformatics, including: next generation sequencing data analysis, protein structure prediction and applications, systems biology, and molecular ecology. The workshop will define and discuss the current research challenges, open problems and exciting research opportunities of these areas, and come up with novel solutions, suggestions and strategies for addressing the key challenges.

The NSF EPSCoR Workshop in Bioinformatics to Foster Collaborative Research is funded through the National Science Foundation (Award No. 1239812).

PI, Dr. Xiuzhen Huang (Computer Science, ASU), Co-PI, Dr. Gail McClure (Arkansas Science & Technology Authority)
