#HavanaBioinfo2012 Workshop

As part of Heberprot-P Havana 2012 International Congress, the CIGB is organizing a pre-congress Workshop on Bioinformatics and Biotechnology Applications. These tools are widely used in studies related to the EGF-EGFr system and will be of relevant importance in the future development of new therapeutics. The course will cover topics such as: computational proteomics and genomics, data integration, expression data analysis and regulatory networks, protein-protein interaction networks, mathematical models of biochemical pathways, drug design, virtual screening, docking and QSAR. Bioinformatics and OMICS, Havana 2012 will be held from December 8th to 11th 2012 at Occidental Miramar Hotel. (Workshop Site)



The workshop would include numbers of advanced topics regarding computational proteomics, system biology resources, molecular modeling and drug design.  This workshop has been designed to be a place for exchange new ideas. Some of the lectures will provide new skills and knowledge about software platform for protein identification, docking, molecular dynamics and biological databases. Sixteen professors and invited speakers representing leading Bioinformatics Companies (Matrix, Bioinformatics Solutions) and Academic Groups from Ghent University, Nancy University and Tubingen) are attended. Therefore, this workshop will provide us not only essential knowledge about bioinformatics and its biotechnology applications, but also a great opportunity to share experiences about the current and future challenges in Bioinformatics.
