The Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Novosibirsk, Russia, will arrange the 5th International Young Scientists School “Systems biology and Bioinformatics”, SBB-2014.

SBB-2014 School will be dedicated to systems biology and bioinformatics.

Here are the fields of bioinformatics and systems biology on which the conference will be focused in 2014:

1) Computational analysis of next-gen sequencing data

2) Evolutionary bioinformatics

3) Gene networks modeling and supercomputing


Practical class

Computer databases for genome data analysis
Dr. Y.L. Orlov, D.A. Afonnikov (ICG SB RAS, Novosibirsk)
Analysis of genome data needs integration of databases on next generation sequencing, gene expression and gene functional annotation. We consider examples of whole-genome sequencing data processing using tools and databases from UCSC Genome Browser, ENCODE project, NCBI and Ensembl.

Practical class
Design and analysis of genetic association networks. Computer system ANDVisio
Dr. Tiys E.S. (ICG SB RAS, Novosibirsk)
We discuss Associative Network Discovery (AND) System. The system allows automated extraction of knowledge about molecular-genetic interactions in cell from scientific literature and databases using text-mining and data-mining approaches. ANDVisio is a tool for reconstruction of semantic associative networks. The AND system allows user to automatically reconstruct gene networks associated with some gene, protein, metabolite, miRNA, disease, pathway or cellular component.
