Harnessing biological data: from molecular processes to human health
13 – 15 September 2021, Basel
The [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference is Switzerland's main event in the domain of Computational Biology and one of the major events of its kind in Europe. The conference unites scientists from academia, industry and healthcare working in a broad range of disciplines: from deciphering spatiotemporal gene expression patterns, to modelling evolutionary dynamics or acquiring a better understanding of how genetics influence human health.
[BC]2 features inspiring keynote lectures by international experts, presentations of the latest scientific results and methods in the field, workshops and tutorials fostering hands-on capabilities, and poster sessions along with social and networking activities to refresh the mind and connect with peers in a friendly atmosphere.
The SPHN DCC will be represented at the conference by the Personalized Health Informatics Group's Data Interoperability Team who will be delivering a Tutorial on Semantic representation of clinical data in RDF on Monday 13th September. Participants will learn how to access, understand and use the SPHN RDF schema during this workshop, giving insight into the infrastructure/tool stack provided by SPHN and BioMedIT to handle the SPHN RDF data. The full details of the workshop can be found here. Participation spaces in the Tutorial are limited, early registration is advised.
