Workshop on extending database technology, St. Petersburg, Russia
A workshop on extending database technology for life sciences will be held on 23 March 2009 in St. Petersburg, Russia.
With the rapid advances in information technology in recent years, life sciences research has been boosted to a new level. High-throughput instruments, such as scanners, mass spectrometers and sequencers, have led to a tremendous growth in the amount of life science data. The diversity and volume of this data present significant challenges for extending data management technology. In order to perform complex and computationally intensive analyses, proper data management techniques and tools are needed.
This workshop will be a forum for presenting and discussing ideas, challenges, and opportunities for data management technology in the life sciences area. New and existing concepts and techniques will be considered in the light of the increasing interest in life sciences research and the significant advances in system infrastructures and available data sources.For further information, please visit:
