We are organizing the Research MIMOmics Summer School in Cambridge (20th -27th August).
For information and application see here.
The summer school consists of 3 parts:
• A set of introductory lectures will guide the students in omics and statistical technologies.
• State of the art epidemiology methods and bioinformatics applications will be given by scientists during the Dissemination Workshop of MIMOmics.
• Hands-on training and research projects will be provided for small groups of students (2-4). Students will be able to choose from a series of research projects.
It is intended to train a new generation of statistical omics scientists of the biological and technological background for data measurements and for data analysis methodologies. The target group of applicant is from last year of Bachelor to 1st-2nd year of PhD.
The F2F meeting on June 29th, 2017 will take place in Leeds. The program will be from 9-17 hr and the location will be room 9.58b in the Worsley building. Information on the location can be found here, and campus map can be downloaded.
The Worsley Building is number 95 on the campus map, with the main entrance on the Clarendon Way. However, please note that Clarendon Way is currently not a through road to traffic due to roadworks, although it is ok for pedestrians.
The topic is statistical and machine learning methods for omics research. The workshop will be under the umbrella of LASR (Leeds Annual Statistical Research) which has been initiated and organized in the past by Prof Kanti Mardia. The workshop will also disseminate methods developed during the 5 years program MIMOmics. Sir David Cox and Prof Ana Conesa (Centro de Investigación Príncipe Felipe, Valencia, Spain and University of Florida, Gainesville, USA) and many others have confirmed to give a lecture at the workshop. For detailed see workshop website.
The fourth annual meeting will be organised on 26th – 28th of September 2016 at the Sheraton Zagreb Hotel in Croatia. The registration tool and hotel reservation link was send by email to all partners of the MIMOmics consortium. The deadline for registration, for the meeting and the reservation for the hotel, is August 12th. The Scientific Advisory Board will also be present at the annual meeting 2016.
A research summer school in statistical omics will be organised on 7th – 21st of August 2016 in Split, Croatia. For more details look at Research Summer School in Statistical Omics.
