Colorful analogies to catastrophic events, including floods, avalanches,
tidal waves, and even explosions, have often been used to describe the
overwhelming nature of high-throughput, biological data. The deluge of
data shows no sign of abating, particularly as new technologies appear
(protein chips) and established technologies are improved (mass
spectrometers, DNA micro-arrays) or re- implemented on industrial
scales. Finding new ways to integrate, manage, visualize, and interpret
data from diverse sources is one of the grand challenges for modern
bioinformatics, which merges information technology, computer science,
statistics, applied mathematics, and biology. Topics of interest to this
workshop include, but are not limited to:


* Protein-protein interactions

* mRNA and protein expression

* Functional annotation of genes and proteins

* Ontological classifications

* Signaling and regulatory pathways

* Biology-specific knowledge representation

* Biological data preparation and cleansing

* High-throughput experimental data monitoring and tracking

* Sequence- or structure-based data analysis

* Knowledge curation, annotation, and reporting

* Use of natural language processing techniques and/or artificial

* intelligence techniques to automatically extract multiple

* biological objects such as gene names, protein names, drugs,
organisms, disease, etc., from free-text.

* Information and knowledge extraction such as object-object
interactions (ex: protein interactions, functions, etc.).

* Software systems to support biological research that integrates
multi-format and multi-type data from heterogeneous databases.

* Information visualization techniques for biological networks and
integrated biological systems.

* Application of machine learning in the mining of very large
dimensional data such as microarray and mass-spectrometry data.

* Computational methods that model cellular mechanisms, the protein
machine, pathways, and regulatory networks.

* Algorithms for processing and interpreting large-scale mass-
spectrometry data

* Comparative genomics and genome dynamics (i.e., evolution of whole
genomes, e.g., by translocations, reversals, duplications, etc.)
Modeling of small molecule ligand binding to proteins.

* An informatics technique, strategy, and tool that combine multiple
types of data.

* Investigation of genome, transcriptome, proteome, or metabolome data,
using multiple computational techniques, strategies, and tools.

* High-performance systems engineering ideas and strategies using
concepts learned from bioinformatics.

* Significant biological discoveries using a consistent suite of
investigative tools.

* Other novel bioinformatics topics in life sciences may also be
considered, as long as the topics contribute to the expansion of a
system-scale understanding of biological processes and/or the creation
of practical informatics solutions for real-world life science problems.
