Project MedBioinformatics promotes the 1st European Conference on Translational Bioinformatics (ECTB 2016)

The conference took place at the University of Copenhagen on April 26-27, bringing together 150 experts in the area.

The conference addressed among others the following topics:

  • Biomedical big data approaches
  • Data capture and curation
  • Precision medicine
  • Data integration and analytics combining omics and clinical data

ECTB is a new series of scientific conferences promoted by the MedBioinformatics project, which aims to hace continuity by means of new editions to be held in UK (2017) and Barcelona (2018).

MedBioinformatics "Creating medically-driven integrative bioinformatics applications focused on oncology, CNS disorders and their comorbidities", is a project aiming to develop useful and autonomously usable bioinformatics tools for integrating and analysing the huge amount of data and knowledge generated in healthcare and biomedical research in order to facilitate translational research and precision medicine. MedBioinformatics is an european project funded by H2020 for the period 2015-2018 and it is coordinated by the GRIB,  with the participation of other research groups of IMIM and UPF.
