ADVBS and Workshops

1st Australasian Data Visualisation and Bioinformatics Symposium (ADVBS) and Workshop

ADVBS flyerOn behalf of the Organising Committee, I wish to welcome you to the 1st Australasian Data Visualisation and Bioinformatics Symposium (ADVBS) to be held on February 7th 2020, in conjunction with the 25th Annual Lorne Proteomics Symposium 2020, Lorne, Victoria. The ADVBS will focus on integrating computational and statistical approaches to interrogate mass spectrometry-based data, producing visually compelling biological narratives. Running concurrently with the annual meeting of the Australasian Proteomics Society (APS) provides an opportunity for researchers to become data fluent by way of exposure to the latest approaches in data visualization and analysis.
Prior to the 1st ADVBS, we will also be hosting a two-day Data Visualisation and Bioinformatics Workshop to provide an exciting hands-on opportunity for the wider-omics community. Through knowledge and experience in how to use, explore, interpret and visualize data in a meaningful way, research can be communicated more effectively. Combined, the ADVBS and Workshop will host an outstanding line-up of international speakers (see below) and showcase talent in the region by covering a variety of engaging topics.

On behalf of the Organising Committee,

2nd Australasian Core Facility Meeting

The second Australasian Core Facilities Meeting will be held on Thursday 6th February 2020.  The meeting will run from 12noon to 3:30pm and will include lunch and refreshments.  Building on the success of the inaugural meeting at HUPO 2019, co-chairs Ben Crossett and Ralf Schittenhelm aim to brings together the leaders in core facility management for an afternoon of inciteful analysis, debate and sharing of best practice. The meeting is ideally suited to those working in or with core facilities or aspiring to move into core facility management. The full program will be released later this year, but registration is $70 and is now open. Click here to register!
