BioSB Course: Managing and Integrating Life Science Information

The BioSB Course on Managing and Integrating Life Science information will be held in October 2015 in Amsterdam (exact date will follow soon).

There is a vast and growing amount of Life Science data available in the public domain. It is a rich resource for bioinformatics research, but discovering and integrating relevant data is far from trivial. Following this course will show you new techniques for working with large, heterogeneous data sources and help you exploit existing information. It will also focus on methods for using or linking your own data into this large distributed web of resources.


– Linked Data, RDF and Ontologies
– Web Services and Workflows
– Publishing and Sharing Data

Target Audience

This course is for bioinformaticians who would like to learn about leading-edge data and knowledge integration solutions. After following the course, students will have an understanding of the major issues in data and knowledge integration and will be able to apply the technologies and techniques from the course to their own research questions.
There are no pre-requisites for this course, but we assume a basic understanding of bioinformatics programming for hands-on sessions.
