Integrating Large Data into Plant Science: From Big Data to Discovery


Totnes, Devon, UK

Start Date:

Thursday 21st April


21-22 April 2016

Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon


GARNet and the Exeter Institute for the Life Sciences are excited to announce a two-day workshop on 'Integrating Large into Plant Science: From Big Data to Discovery' to be held in the picturesque Dartington Hall in Devon.


The aims of this workshop are to:

1. Introduce examples of how researchers have re-used datasets in innovative ways.

2. Examine the intrastructure that exists to support the re-use of large datasets

3. Discuss the mechanisms by which the community deals with big data.


We have an exciting program with speakers from across academia, industry and the scientific journals and includes Nick Provart (Bio-Analytic Resource, Toronto), Carole Goble CBE (Manchester), Angela Hancock (MFPL, Vienna), Gordon Simpson (JHI, Dundee), Eva Huala (Phoenix Bioinformatics) and Matt Vaughn (Texas Advanced Computing Centre).


Due to kind support from the ERC and the BBSRC, registration for this workshop is free and there are a limited number of rooms available at Dartington Hall at a reduced rate.

If you are interested in attending please email the GARNet coordinator Geraint Parry (geraint@garnetcommunity.org.uk) with a short paragraph outlining why this workshop would be useful to you. The organising committee will then let you know if you have been successfully selected.
