2014 BGI Bioinformatics Workshop on Diseases

16 Jun 2014 - 20 Jun 2014 - Shenzhen, China



Bookmark and Share


With the development and applications of high-throughput sequencing technologies, the study model of human diseases has been gradually shifting from hypothesis-oriented to data-oriented. Such data-oriented, large-scale, industrialized study mode, is taking great advance to study from the genomic level, transcriptomic level as well as the epigenomic level, which makes it possible to advance multi-level research. With the aim to inspire researchers’ innovative ideas and new strategies, the workshop will focus on whole genome resequencing, exome sequencing and personalized target region sequencing technologies, and their applications in human disease research, such as identifying complex disease genotyping and molecular markers, screening drug targets related genes or structural variations. Through epigenomic technologies, you will see the map of whole genome methylation and that of histone/transcription factor binding regions through bisulfite sequencing, MeDIP sequencing and ChIP sequencing, which helps to illustrate the pathogenic mechanisms of epigenetic modification in related diseases. We are looking forward to you attending BGI’s bioinformatics workshop on diseases.

Playing 'Tag' with Pollution lets Scientists See Who's It
Using a climate model that can tag sources of soot from different global regions and can track where it lands on the Tibetan Plateau, researchers have determined which areas around the plateau contribute the most soot — and where.
Women’s Immune System Genes Operate Differently from Men’s
A new technology reveals that immune system genes switch on and off differently in women and men, and the source of that variation is not primarily in the DNA.
Long Telomeres Associated with Increased Lung Cancer Risk
Genetic predisposition for long telomeres predicts increased lung adenocarcinoma risk.
First Artificial Ribosome Designed
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University have engineered a tethered ribosome that works nearly as well as the authentic cellular component, or organelle, that produces all the proteins and enzymes within the cell.
