  • ASSERT Lab & INES & UFPE researches at VEME Workshop

    Publicado em February 9th, 2015Projects

    In 9 – 14 August 2015 St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago, the ASSERT LAB group will participate of the 20th International Bioinformatics Workshop on Virus Evolution and Molecular Epidemiology (VEME), more information here.

    Biomedical data processing is a relatively new and challenging research field. Some of these challenges are addressed for Software Engineering, mostly the ones that handle with big data processing, pattern recognition, alignment and mapping of genetic and molecular information.

    With the intention of assist researchers for training in Bioinformatics methods, the International Committee for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (ICGEB) will promote from august 9 to 15 of 2015 the international workshop on Virus Evolution and Molecular Epidemiology (VEME), hosted by The University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago. The workshop is co-organized by the University of Leuven (Belgium) and the J. Craig Venter Institute (USA).

    One of 4-day course offered is  ‘Large Dataset Analysis’  that will cover the more complex analysis of full genomes, huge datasets of pathogens including Next Generation Sequencing data, and combined analyses of pathogen and host. On day 5, the workshop have some half-day courses including ‘Large Phylogenies’, ‘Visualization of Large Phylogenies with Metadata’, ‘Recombination and Networks’ and ‘Virus Analysis Tools’.

    Vinicius Cardoso Garcia pretends to attend the VEME 2015 with his Phd student Jackson Raniel Florencio da Silva in order to better understand the Software Engineering applications and practices in bioinformatics field and to start to work together with the Rega Institute research group (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) in order to establish new research trends and partnership in the context of the RegaDB project.
