Quartz Bio is proud to be part of BioAlps, a swiss life science network, that comprises an active and fertile fabric of research institutions,academic institutions, start-up companies and large multinationals. Here is a link to their report on the Bioalps 2016 Bioinformatic landscape.
We will be attending the BIODATA world congress 2016 (26-27th October, Wellcome Genome Campus, Cambridge UK). Harnessing the power of big data in precision medicine. Alessandro Di Cara will be giving a talk on reproducible research in clinical bioinformatics. We look forward to meeting you.
We are happy to annouce the publication of the manuscript "Single Nucleotide Polymorphism Clustering in Systemic Autoimmune Diseases" by Thomas Charlon, published in August in PLOS ONE.
The article describes a clustering methodology aimed at removing the ancenstry bias in genetic analyses and uncovering disease-relevant traits. The project was conducted as part of the PRECISESADS consortium which is developping a new, biomarker-based, classification for inflammatory auto-immune disease.
Karl Forner and Claudia Armenise have participated at the Topcoder data science challenge. The event was sponsored by the Broad institute and Harvard university. The challenge consisted in finding ways of optimizing the alignment of multiple DNA sequences to a reference DNA, taking into account small differences, “errors”, in the sequences.
