*** CALL FOR PAPERS - NEW PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE JUNE 5 *** we have extended the deadlines for the workshop. Several people have requested this as the current deadline clashes with other events.

3rd Integrative Bioinformatics Workshop
September 4-6, 2006
Rothamsted Research, Harpenden, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom http://www.rothamsted.bbsrc.ac.uk/bab/conf/ibiof/

Accepted papers will also appear in the Journal of Integrative Bioinformatics http://journal.imbio.de/

DESCRIPTION
Biological data are scattered across hundreds of biological databases and thousands of scientific journals. Current high throughput genomics technologies generate large quantities of high dimensional data. Microarray, NMR, mass spectrometry, protein chips, gel electrophoresis data, Yeast-Two-Hybrid, QTL mapping, gene silencing and knockout experiments are all examples of technologies that capture thousands of data points, often in single experiments. The challenge for Integrative Bioinformatics is to capture, model, integrate and analyse these data in a consistent way to provide new and deeper insights into complex biological systems. 
This, third workshop on Integrative Bioinformatics will be of interest to Bioinformaticians, Computer Scientists and others working in, or interested in finding out more about, the developing area of integrative bioinformatics. There will be opportunities to present and discuss methods, theoretical approaches or their practical applications.
