We are proud to count with outstanding keynote speakers in data integration
Prof. Dr. Lennart Martens, Computational Omics and Systems Biology Group, Department of Medical Protein Research, VIB, Ghent, Belgium
His group focus on three key points, aimed at enabling systems biology modeling:
- Data collection and integration across the various Omics fields
– (Semi-)automatic quality control of the obtained data using configurable expert systems
– Development of computational Omics to help set up and guide experiments based on a user-supplied list of target entities.
