A seminar titled "Current Challenges and Bioinformatics" will be presented by Dr. Luka Ausec on Tuesday, 18 April 2017 at 16.00 at the Faculty of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Information Technologies of the University of Primorska.
Lecture room: FAMNIT-1-MP2
Lecturer: Dr. Luka AUSEC, bioinformaik v Genialis,
Title: Current challenges in bioinformatics
The seminar will be composed of two parts. The first 30 minutes will be dedicated to a presentation by a representative from Genialis, a bioinformatics software company based in Slovenia and the US. The lecture will focus on the past, present and future hurdles in bioinformatics, both in routine analyses and in support of state of the art research. By focusing on a typical journey of data from a sequencer to a publication-ready figure, we’ll discuss possible solutions to major bottlenecks, such as cloud/on premise deployments, data management and annotation, version control and reproducibility, data reuse and sharing. Particular ways of how Genialis software tackles this issues will be presented. In the second part of the seminar, on open Q&A session will be moderated and questions and opinions from the audience will be debated. We'll try to inspire you to consider Genialis as a potential future employer.
The lecture is organised as a part of Monday's Computer Science Seminar coordinated by the Departments of Information Sciences and Technologies and UP FAMNIT and UP IAM.
