Workshop on Cutting- edge Bioinformatics

                          Nov 16-21, 2011, Shenzhen, China

BGI has established a proven track record of excellence, delivering results with high efficiency and accuracy for innovative, high-profile research which has generated over 170 publications in top-tier journals such as Nature and Science. These accomplishments include sequencing one percent of the human genome for the International Human Genome Project, contributing 10 percent to the International Human HapMap Project, carrying out research to combat SARS and German deadly E. coli, playing a key role in the Sino-British Chicken Genome Project, and completing the sequence of the rice genome, the silkworm genome, the first Asian diploid genome, the potato genome, and, most recently, 1000 genomes and human Gut metagenome.

Based on BGI’s powerful infrastructure and acknowledged research background, BGI will host their next Bioinformatics workshop on November 16-21, 2011 in Shenzhen China after 6th ICG Nov 12-15, 2011. We will provide you with a professional platform for discovering the latest technologies and sharing our experiences in Bioinformatics. The workshop will combine lectures in the most up-to-date bioinformatics theory with hands-on learning opportunities delivered by our senior bioinformatics professionals.

We are confident that, with both your active participation, the workshop will be a scientifically rewarding and enjoyable experience, providing an opportunity to promote genome-related research by active communication and building collaborative networks between disciplines and continents.

We look forward to welcoming you to our workshop!
