Large Animal Genetic Engineering Summit

Location: Bethesda, Maryland
Brief info:
Meeting Objectives:

1) Provide updates on genetic engineering technologies, including genome editing, and their biomedical and agricultural applications in academia and industry.

2) Engage federal agencies, industry representatives and academic researchers in a policy development forum. The focus of this panel discussion will be to: broadly define large animal research areas/topics that include transgenesis; and develop joint strategies to improve funding focused on developing the best animal models for a given trait/disease (dual purpose with dual benefit and beyond).

3) Generate discussion on regulations pertaining to genetically engineered livestock and review the Medical Device Development Tools (MDDT) program.

Bio-Ontologies SIG (Special Interest Group) co-located with ISMB

Location: Chicago, USA
Lecturer:
Brief info:
We invite the submission of short papers, flash updates and posters for presentation at the Bio-Ontologies. Papers are invited in the following three areas:
1. The development of biological and biomedical ontologies to represent and structure knowledge.
2. Ontology-focused tools and methods (e.g. ontology engineering, ontology alignment, biocuration, information extraction, text mining, data integration) featuring biological use cases.
3. Biological applications of ontologies (e.g. ontologies use in data mining, machine learning, visualization, knowledge graphs, semantic query answering)
