Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Second Annual

Genomics & Sequencing Data Integration, Analysis and Visualization

Impact of Data Quality and Novel Bioinformatics Tools on Life Sciences Research and Clinical Decisions

February 19-20, 2015 | The InterContinental San Francisco | San Francisco, CA

In the last two decades, the scientific community has seen an explosion of high-throughput omics technologies that have motivated the development of novel tools and statistical methods to integrate data into large-scale data warehouses and repositories. The massive surge of biological data being collected is increasing the need to turn the mountain of information into meaningful biological applications and knowledge. The key is enabling researchers, scientists, and clinical data providers to derive insights and relationships in the big data sets from diverse groups and diverse origins to make better assessments, interpretations, and decisions.  

The Genomics & Sequencing Data Integration, Analysis and Visualization Symposium will present real-world cases on the impact of data quality and novel bioinformatics tools on life sciences research and clinical decisions based on genomic information Thought leaders will discuss data quality, data type differences, who has the data, how is the data put it together, what data is needed to address specific needs (e.g., research, drug discovery, diagnostics, clinical, patient health), and analytical strategies that demonstrate impact.  

Who should attend:Directors, Managers, Researchers, and Scientists from Pharma, Biotechs, Academia, Government and Healthcare Organizations working in Research, R&D Informatics, Translational Genomics, Bioinformatics, Informative Technology, Predictive Medicine, Biostatistics, Statistics, and Computational Biology     

Topics will include, but are not limited to: 

  • Data Overview: Types, Sources, Storage
  • Databases: Network, Pathway, Private, Public
  • Privacy, Security and Standards
  • Computational Approaches for Visualization and Integration of Omics Data
  • Analytical and Patient Centric Data Visualization Tools
  • How to Get Clinical Data Available for Analysis
  • Scalable Sharing
  • Systems Biology
  • Bioinformatics in Clinical and Translational Research


If you would like to submit a proposal to give a presentation at this meeting, please click here.  

The deadline for submission is July 18, 2014. 

All proposals are subject to review by the Scientific Advisory Committee to ensure the highest quality of the conference program.  Please note that due to limited speaking slots, preference is given to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, regulators and those from academia. Additionally, vendors/consultants who provide products and services to these biopharmaceutical companies are offered opportunities for podium presentation slots based on a variety of Corporate Sponsorships.
