Session Description

This event has ended. To view the recording of the 2016 symposium, visit

Previous Bioinformatics Research Symposiums:
June 24, 2014 Bioinformatics Symposium - Day 1 High-Throughput Data Analysis: Next Generation Sequencing and Microarray

June 24, 2014 Bioinformatics Symposium - Day 2 Functional Analysis: Analysis of Pathways and Gene Sets

Attend the NIH Library Bioinformatics Symposium, to learn how scientists are using software licensed by the NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program to analyze, integrate, and annotate data from multiple genomics technologies, including next generation sequencing. Discover the latest applications of these data analysis tools to problems in molecular biology. Find out how state-of-the-art knowledge bases and pathway analysis applications are transforming downstream functional analysis of high-throughput experiment data.

The symposium is free and open to the public. Registration is preferred but not required. For more information, including a complete schedule of presenters, and to register, visit If you have any additional questions about the symposium, please contact Medha Bhagwat at
