NSF EPSCoR Workshop in Bioinformatics to Foster Collaborative Research
March 3-5, 2013
Little Rock, Ark. at the Peabody Hotel & Clinton Presidential Library
Interested in stimulating and fostering research collaborations with bioinformatists and life science researchers? March 3-5, 2013 in Little Rock, the National Science Foundation EPSCoR Bioinformatics Workshop will bring computational and life scientists together to explore mathematical & computational modeling to solve real-world challenges in the life sciences.
The workshop will focus on four rapidly growing areas in bioinformatics, including:
- Next generation sequencing data analysis,
- Protein structure prediction and applications,
- Systems biology,
- Molecular ecology.
The workshop will define and discuss the current research challenges, open problems and exciting research opportunities of these areas, and come up with novel solutions, suggestions and strategies for addressing the key challenges.
The NSF EPSCoR Workshop in Bioinformatics to Foster Collaborative Research is funded through the National Science Foundation (Award No. 1239812).
XSEDE XRAC Awards Recommended to Three UofA Researchers
Three major XSEDE Resource Allocations Committee (XRAC) awards have been recommended to researchers on the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville campus this quarter. This equates to a total of 3,605,021 SU's worth an estimated $288,401.68, using the National Science Foundation's estimation of $0.08 on an SU.
