Description

Life Sciences is a very active field of research using the EGEE infrastructure. Several EGEE related projects are also exploring the use of gLite middleware for bioinformatics and healthcare. The User Forum is a wonderful opportunity to get an overview of the present adoption of grids in the Life Sciences communities through the dedicated oral sessions session but also through the posters and demos exhibition. Complementary to the "medical imaging" session, the "bioinformatics and biomedicine" session programme reflects the variety of topics currently addressed on EGEE and its related projects in the field of life sciences.

Experiences from application porting and deployment
Oral
Life sciences have undergone an immense transformation during the recent years, where advances in genomics, proteomics and other high-throughput techniques produce floods of raw data that need to be stored, analysed and interpreted in various ways. Bioinformatics is crucial by providing tools to efficiently utilize these gold mines of data in order to better understand the roles of proteins...
