SIB Bioinformatics Awards

To promote excellence and innovation in the field of bioinformatics, SIB created the SIB Bioinformatics Awards ten years ago to acknowledge early career bioinformaticians and ground-breaking resources of national and international standing.

SIB Awards honour bioinformatics excellence in three categories:

  • SIB Early Career Bioinformatics Award – an international award to recognise the excellence and promising nature of a researcher’s early career, based on one or several projects and/or papers focussing on the in silico analysis of biological sequences, structures or processes. More information
    Call for entries: 10 January – 31 March 2019
  • SIB Best Swiss Bioinformatics Graduate Paper Award – a national award that recognises outstanding papers published by a graduate student in the area of in silico analysis of biological sequences, structures or processes. More information

Call for entries: 10 January – 31 March 2019

  • SIB Bioinformatics Resource Innovation Award – an international award that recognises newly developed bioinformatics resources with an important impact on life science research or the clear potential to make such an impact. More information

Call for entries: 4 February – 30 April 2019

Applications will be reviewed by a jury of international experts, with the winners to be announced during the awards ceremony of the 14th [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference (part of the Basel Life Congress, 9-12 September 2019, Switzerland). All Awards carry a cash prize and laureates will be invited to give a plenary talk during the [BC]2 conference.

IBM Research – María Rodríguez Martínez – 7th of September

Poster_IBM

Dear all,

The ISCB regional student group for Computational Biology in Switzerland is very pleased to host the talk “Systems approaches to unravel molecular mechanisms of cancer ” by

María Rodríguez Martínez, Technical Leader of Systems Biology at IBM, Zurich Research Lab, on Wednesday the 7th of September 2016 at 18:00 at UZH, Irchel campus, Y03-G91.

Abstract: Despite their great promise, high-throughput technologies in cancer research have often failed to translate into major therapeutic advances in the clinic. One challenge lies in the difficulty of transforming next generation molecular data into mathematical disease models that can make actionable clinical statements. A second challenge arises from the high level of intra-tumor heterogeneity exhibited by most human cancers. To address these challenges new methodologies that can reconstruct the map of genomic alterations and understand its influence on phenotype need to be developed. In this talk I will give an overview of current projects at the Systems Biology group in IBM Research, Zurich, that illustrate systems medicine approaches to understand cancer complexity and that can bridge the chasm between basic research and clinical applications.

The talk will be followed by an apéro, during which participants will have the opportunity to continue discussions with María Rodríguez Martínez.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!
