Call for Abstracts for Talks and Posters – Deadline Extended to May 15
Joint the conference as a presenter – The abtrsact deadline has been extended to May 15. Take this opportunity to join a thriving community, with 3 excellent keynote speakers, and many talks fused on algorithms for High Throughput Sequencing Applications. HitSeq 2016 is a satellite meeting to the ISMB 2016 conference, and brings together biologists and computational scientists interested in exploring the challenges and opportunities in the analysis of high-throughput sequencing (HTS) technologies. HiTSeq 2016 welcomes submissions on any topic related to HTS. However, this year we will be hosting two special tracks on Cancer Genomics & Precision Oncology and Single Cell Sequencing Applications.
Two of the three keynote speakers of the conference have been announced, both nicely aligned with this year’s special topics: Prof. Sunney Xie from Harvard University, a pioneer on single-molecule and -cell sequencing, and Dr. Lincoln Stein, from the Ontario Institute of Cancer Research, a renowned computational biologist working cancer translational research. The third keynote speaker will be announced shortly.
