Mathematical and Statistical Aspects of Molecular Biology
23rd annual MASAMB workshop
Imperial College London
April 11/12 2013

Bioinformatics and statistical genetics, twin themes of the long-running series of annual MASAMB meetings, have gained huge impetus from large-scale genome sequencing projects and development of high-throughput biological assay systems, including gene-expression microarrays, proteomic and metabolomic technologies. These immense data resources, and the underlying complexities of molecular and cell biology, provide exciting research opportunities for numerate scientists.

With typically around 80-120 participants from mathematics, statistics, computer science, bioinformatics, biology and related fields, the MASAMB meetings provide an intimate setting for exchanging ideas in methodological and applied research. Research students and scientists newly entering the field of genomic research are particularly welcome.

Details of previous meetings are available at the MASAMB archive.

Likely topics for sessions this year

Analysis and Inference of Biological Networks
Systems Biology
Phylogenetics and Comparative Genomics
Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics
Next generation sequencing
Statistics for personalised medicine
