ECCB 2010 Workshop:
Annotation, interpretation and management of Mutations (AIMM2010) - Call for Papers
=========================================================================================

http://www.unbsj.ca/sase/csas/data/aimm2010/

This year's will workshop showcase the state of the art in extraction and
reuse of genotype-phenotype information. Annotation of mutations with their
impact on phenotypic expression is crucial to understanding genetic
mechanisms involved in phenotypic processes and ultimately in complex
diseases. Managing this knowledge is key to generating novel hypotheses.
Despite the existence of literature and databases describing impacts
of mutations, association studies fail to deliver linkage to
phenotypes which is the most important contemporary research interest.
Extraction of such information from scientific literature is a
promising research field and existing solutions are ready to be
deployed as services and as semantic web services.

Keynote Speakers:

Michael Schroeder - Professor BIOTEC Technical University Dresden, DE.
Joost Schymkowitz - Professor VIB Switch Laboratory, Vrije Universiteit
