Venue: University of Melbourne, Melbourne, Australia

Date:  Thursday 29th November 2018

Overview:

The Bioconductor project has undergone significant growth over the past 17 years, with over 1,500 packages for high-throughput genomic analysis included in the latest release. Many popular software tools from the project are developed by researchers from the Asia-Pacific region. 

To enhance collaboration and provide an avenue for networking, the 4th Bioconductor Asia meeting will be held following the ABACBS-2018 conference (http://www.abacbs.org/conference2018/about). This one-day event aims to bring together researchers with an interest in the Bioconductor project to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and future plans for software development. We welcome attendance from both users and package developers (current and prospective). The meeting will consist of a number of longer talks selected from abstracts, short ‘lightning’ presentations and software demonstrations to maximize the opportunities for participants to highlight their work and share expertise.

International speakers:

Prof Martin Morgan (Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, New York)
