Scientific Software Development: A short course for engineers and reluctant coders

The objective of this course is to teach the components and methods of modern scientific software development by exposure to lectures and hands-on tutorials exemplifying component principles. The workshop will focus on:

Seeing the Art in Science

Genomics, the study of an organism’s complete set of DNA, has been one of the most significant developments in science over the past 25 years. Genomics provides indispensable technologies and concepts to help solve a myriad of scientific challenges, a common language that facilitates connections between researchers with diverse academic backgrounds, and an unprecedented opportunity to engage with, and improve, the well-being of our society.

Big Data Hub Informational Meeting

The National Science Foundation is launching a 10-year effort to create partnerships around big data and the management infrastructure for big data. The partnerships and infrastructure are expected to evolve around four regions (South, Northeast, Midwest and West), and NSF is calling for the creation of four Regional Innovation Big Data Hubs. Phase 1 of this effort began with a solicitation in which NSF expects to fund up to four proposals (one from each region).

IGB Seminar: Biomaterial systems with controlled temporal and spatial signal presentation for regulating stem cell behavior and tissue engineering

Eben Alsberg, PhD from Case Western Reserve University's Department of Biomedical Engineering will present "Biomaterial systems with controlled temporal and spatial signal presentation for regulating stem cell behavior and tissue engineering."

 

IGB Genome Day 2015

Genome Day is an opportunity for the community to learn about DNA, genes, genomes, and evolution at the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum. Activities will be designed to present the energy use and production, environment, health, and fundamental research at the Institute for Genomic Biology in an approachable manner for all ages. Admission to the event and museum will be free.

Harris A. Lewin Pioneer in Genomic Biology Distinguished Lecture

Sarah A. Tishkoff, David and Lyn Silfen University Professor from the University of Pennsylvania's Departments of Genetics and Biology will present, “Evolutionary Genomic Analyses of African Populations: Implications for human evolution and disease.”

Looking in the right direction: Carl Woese and the New Biology

The Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology is proud to host our symposium "Looking in the right direction: Carl Woese and the New Biology" to mark the renaming of our Institute.

The symposium will highlight not only some of the historical aspects of work on microbiology, evolution and molecular biology as researched by Carl Woese and colleagues, but also some of the most exciting modern research directions that have been inspired or impacted by his work and ideas.

IGB Fellows Symposium

Learn about IGB research, hear about current issues in the life sciences, and connect with other students on campus at the annual Fellows Symposium. This full-day event, sponsored by the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, is also your chance to share your research at the popular Poster Session and reception.

NCSA Colloquium: A Wager for 2016: How Software Will Beat Hardware in Biological Data Analysis

Light refreshments will be available after the colloquium.
