  • Call for Papers-Workshop on Data Mining for NGS Analysis (BIBM2012)

    Call for Papers
    Workshop on Data Mining for NGS Analysis
    in conjunction with
    IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2012)
    Philadelphia, PA, Oct. 4-7, 2012

    Please go to our website: http://orleans.cs.wayne.edu/ngs12/

    Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is becoming one of the standard high throughput data acquisition techniques that finds its application to both genome and transcriptome research. NGS data has unprecedented dynamic range and sensitivity, while introducing nontrivial informatics challenges to the bioinformatics research community. Accelerated development of computing infrastructure, massive storage, sophisticated data analysis methods and scalable computational tools are in great demand to catch up with the rapid increase of the throughput. The goal of this workshop is to bring together the NGS researchers to communicate research results, share new ideals and networking. The main interests of the workshop concern new methods, algorithms and tools for NGS data analysis as well as applications to address important biological problems, as well as developing clinic applications for the disease diagnosis and treatment. Research topics include, but are not limited to:

    1) New analysis, data mining, and pattern recognition methods for NGS data
    2) Database and management of NGS data
    3) Data compression techniques for storing NGS data
    4) Data visualization methods and tools
    5) New methods for integrating multiple types of NGS data or NGS data with other data types
    6) Parallel computing/cloud computing/GPU computing technologies for NGS data processing
    7) Computational frameworks and novel algorithms for identifying structural variations (i.e. large indels, inversions, and translocations) that may be related to complex diseases especially for cancers based on NGS data
    8) NGS applications for novel disease biomarker discovery and biomedical research

    Please submit your full-length manuscript (maximum eight pages in IEEE 2-column format) via the main BIBM 2012 submission system at http://wi-lab.com/cyberchair/2012/bibm12/cbc_index.html. There you will also find detailed formatting instructions and document templates). All papers will undergo peer review by the conference program committee. All papers accepted will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be available at the workshops. Authors of selected papers will be invited to extend their papers for submission to a special issue in the following 2 journals: International Journal of Functional Informatics and Personalized Medicine (IJFIPM) and BMC Bioinformatics.

    Paper submission: July 30, 2012 Notification of Acceptance: Aug. 20, 2012

      A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
      by seqadmin

      ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

      Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
      by seqadmin
      Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

      The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
