May 8, 2012 | Bio-IT World has invited a group of superb world-renowned speakers from across Asia, Europe, and North America for its very first conference in Asia (Marina Bay Sands, Singapore; June 6-8, 2012). They will present the latest advances in research and technology in areas such as next-gen sequencing, personalized medicine, high-performance and cloud computing, bioinformatics, drug discovery and development, and translational research.
Some of the major speakers at this exciting 3-day conference include:
David Ho (New York) – Time magazine’s “Man of the Year” in 1996 will discuss the latest research in molecular biology and epidemiology to combat the plague of HIV/AIDS in the opening keynote.
Clive Brown (Oxford) presents the latest next-gen sequencing technology from Oxford Nanopore, the British company pioneering nanopore sequencing.
Peter Little (Singapore), director of the Life Sciences Institute at National University of Singapore, will show new ‘omics data to produce a systems model of bacterial communities in a key public health arena.
Chris Dagdigian (Boston), a former Bio-IT World Expo keynote speaker, reviews the latest IT trends in high-performance computing, cloud computing, and data storage.
Yijun Ruan (Singapore) outlines new methods and technologies for the predictive analysis of functional DNA variants in the human genome.
Yoshihide Hayashizaki (Japan) covers the application of NGS analysis to build and identify transcriptional regulatory networks of cells as part of the international FANTOM consortium.
James Taylor (Atlanta) is one of the co-founders of Galaxy, a popular open-source informatics platform for next-gen sequence data analysis.
A number of researchers from Singapore, including Richie Soong, Wayne Mitchell, Ee Chee Ren, Rohan Williams, Michael Poidinger, Paul Robson and Chanchal Kumar discuss the latest in ‘omics research for personalized medicine and computational drug discovery.
Jorge Andrade (China) describes the latest research progress and collaborations at BGI Shenzhen, with particular emphasis on partnerships with biopharma.
Stephen Rudd (Malaysia) presents a cloud-based resource for comparative human genomics.
Hideaki Fujitani (Tokyo) talks about high-performance computing for drug discovery and development using the powerful K supercomputer.
… and many more!
We hope you can join us for this landmark event!
