Bioinformatics in Florence

After sequencing the human genome, scientists spent a lot of time on developing the bioinformatics tools and infrastructure needed to harvest the wealth of information in those 23 chromosomes. As technological progress drives falling costs, sequencing (and other forms of large scale molecular assay) have become routine in all scientific fields. But the bioinformatics support for other use cases has been critically lacking compared with human genomics.

On this matter Cnr–Institute for biomedical technologies is organizing the congress 'Allbio 2014' that will take place on June 11-13 in Florence. It will demonstrate the software, pipelines and specifications arising from the AllBio community efforts; highlight a number of outstanding tools available for use in unicellular, plant and animal science; showcase cutting edge data-driven science in these fields.

The AllBio project has coordinated efforts apply these technologies work to further fields such as microbial, plant, and livestock bioinformatics through a unique approach, based on harvesting bringing together communities to solve actual use cases and overcome common information bottlenecks.
