About the event

Modern life science research is increasingly reliant on data science, and a failure to keep pace with computational methods will leave UK life science research treading water. 

The UK-CBCB conference will cover the breadth of biological data management, analysis and sharing. 

Bringing together biologists, bioinformaticians, computer scientists, software engineers and data scientists across the life sciences, to share innovations, applications and best practice in their fields. Talks will cover data standards, algorithm and tool development, and data curation.

The three-day conference will be applicable to bioinformatics researchers working on core services or in research teams as well as computer scientists or bioinformaticians developing tools or maintaining data resources. 

Register your interest now to keep updated about the conference and hear when registrations are open!

We are delighted to have confirmed the following sessions:

  • Structural Bioinformatics - analysis and prediction of three-dimensional molecular structures
  • Metagenomics and Microbial Bioinformatics - the diversity and complexity of microbial genomes and identification in environmental samples
  • Research Data Management - approaches for validation, storage and protection of data under the FAIR principles
  • Bridging Genotype to Phenotype - computational approaches to deciphering the complex interactions between genotype and environment and how these affect phenotype
  • Computational Proteomics and Metabolomics - harnessing large-scale studies to determine protein and metabolite function for the discovery of biomarkers 
  • Artificial Intelligence - exploring innovative applications of artificial intelligence for the exploration of complex biological data

We will be offering the opportunity to present your research at the conference, further details will be provided once registration opens. 

ELIXIR-UK All Hands 

Alongside the UK-CBCB, we are hosting the annual ELIXIR-UK All Hands. This meeting brings together people working at ELIXIR-UK consortium member institutions to:

  • Share knowledge and experience from the previous year of ELIXIR activities
  • Network with other people working on life science data infrastructure across the UK
  • Work together to develop strategy for the future of ELIXIR-UK

All members of ELIXIR-UK consortium member institutions working on ELIXIR-related projects are welcome to join a pre-conference meeting, and all UK-CBCB attendees are welcome to join parallel sessions and breakout groups.

Register today.

Registration deadline: 27 September 2021

Participation: Open to all
