Bioinformatics Hub at the HUPO 2016 World Congress

This event has concluded successfully. We thank the many participants to came to the hub. The agenda and related information about the hub is still posted below for follow-on work. Planning is underway to prepare for another Bioinformatics Hub next year at the 2017 World Congress.

Overview

The Bioinformatics Hub is a place where bioinformaticians gather together with three aims: (i) to provide their advice, knowledge, and support to anyone with a relevant question; (ii) to discuss current issues and challenges in proteomics informatics with the entire community; and (iii) to work on interesting, synergistic projects and to freely exchange tools, algorithms and know-how with each other, across all labs, seniorities and levels of experience.

This is achieved by specific sessions in the agenda. The Ask the Experts sessions (every day between 9h30 and 12h30) explicitly open the floor to anyone with a question, and leverages the combined experience and expertise of all Hub participants to answer those questions. The Special Interest Topic sessions address a current problem or issue in proteomics informatics in a short (max 20 min lecture), followed by an open, discussion of the topic by all participants, moderated by the organizers. The last type of session, the workshop style sessions, allow participants to work on synergistic topics of their choice, or to exchange know-how, tools and algorithms with the other participants.

The Bioinformatics Hub operates under an open door policy, and that anyone is free to walk in at any time and participate in the work or the discussions, ask a question of someone, or just listen in on what is going on! The bioinformatics hub is meant to be inclusive, low threshold, and aimed at knowledge exchange across all levels of experience.

Also note that representatives from the vendors are very much welcome to participate in the Hub, and typically are well-represented indeed. So your questions on vendor software can also be handled by the experts!

Special Planned Topics:

Glycoproteomics Informatics (Organizer: Kay-Hooi Khoo)

  • Wednesday 10h30-12h30: Special Interest Topic: Glycoproteomics Informatics
    • This 2h Special Interest Topic session will comprise several 20-30 min talks/tutorials on the use of Prospector, Byonic, Pinnacle and other computational tools developed by academic labs for glycoproteomics MS/MS data mining. It aims to provide insider tips and to address some of the pitfalls and FDR issues.
  • Wednesday 13h30-15h30: Glycoproteomics Informatics: Ask the Experts/Workshop Session - Will be organized based on the interests generated and received prior to and during the above Special Topics Session. - For all updates and further information, please visit http://glycosolutions.weebly.com/
