Bioinformatics: converting data to knowledge : a workshop by Robert Pool

By Robert Pool

The objective of this workshop was once to assemble bioinformatics stake holders from executive, academe, and for an afternoon of shows and discussion. Fifteen specialists pointed out and mentioned probably the most very important concerns raised via the present flood of biologic information. issues explored integrated the significance of database curation, database integration and interoperability, consistency and criteria in terminology, blunders prevention and correction, information provenance, ontology, the significance of preserving privateness, information mining, and the necessity for extra laptop scientists with area of expertise education in bioinformatics. even though formal conclusions and proposals won't come from this actual workshop, many insights might be gleaned in regards to the way forward for this box, from the context of the discussions and shows defined here.

Example text

The group provides two resources: the Saccharomyces Genome Database and the Stanford Microarray Database. It provided the Arabidopsis thaliana Database until September 1999. The genome databases are service projects for the scientific community that collect, maintain, and distribute information. The group also creates software tools and adds value to these Web resources via curation. The group is involved in various analyses of genomes and their gene products. The third major project is on DNA expression microarrays.

If you scale it down to a cellular size, 10 micrometers [10 thousandths of a millimeter]—that represents 75,000 trillion data points for one brain at one time. If you take that across the age range—from birth to 100 years—and do that for different populations, Copyright © National Academy of Sciences.

His current research is concerned with strategies for sequencing genomes, the analysis of geneexpression data, and other combinatorial problems arising in molecular biology. He has received the US National Medal of Science, the Harvey Prize (Technion), the Turing Award (Association for Computing Machinery), the Centennial Medal (Harvard University), the Fulkerson Prize (American Mathematical Society and Mathematical Programming Society), the von Neumann Theory Prize (Operations Research Society of America and the Institute for Management Science), the Lanchester Prize (Operations Research Society of America and the Institute for Management Science), the Von Neumann Lectureship (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), and the Distinguished Teaching Award (University of California, Berkeley).
