Bioinformatics Forum for SMEs (Small-Medium sized companies), Barcelona 8-9, Spain, October 2012

SME Bioinformatics Forum, Barcelona, Spain, 8-9 October 2012

The workshop will introduce bioinformatics tools and data resources and will present opportunities for SMEs to use and integrate these resources in order to derive business benefit from the existing and developing infrastructure. There will be a combination of presentations and hands-on tutorials from EMBL-EBI staff and from several of the Spanish organisations and research institutes within INB. The meeting is subsidised by the sponsoring organisations and provides an excellent learning and networking opportunity for SMEs with an interest in publicly available resources in bioinformatics and cheminformatics.

The full list of topics covered are:

Genomic resources: the Ensembl genome browser and the European Nucleotide Archive (ENA)
Proteomics resources: UniProt and InterPro
Chemical resources: the ChEMBL database, ChEBI and MetaboLights
Functional genomics: ArrayExpress and the Gene Expression Atlas
Molecular interactions: the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and ligand information Integration services and EBI Search
