LSU Shreveport and LBRN Host Computational Biology Workshop

March 09, 2012
LSU Shreveport and the Louisiana Biomedical Research Network (LBRN) will host the 5th Computational Biology Workshop. The one-day event will take place Friday, March 23, 2012 in the University Center, Caddo-Bossier Room on the LSU Shreveport campus. All researchers, faculty, graduate and undergraduate students are invited to attend this workshop.

The workshop will begin with a keynote address from Professor Jessica Kissinger, Director of the Institute for Bioinformatics at the University of Georgia. Additional topics will include computational dimensions of NIH R15 (PUI-oriented) and broader grant proposals; bioinformatic applications of MATLAB and broader analytic tools (both supported by BBCore); and a panel on present and future LBRN PI applications of bioinformatics, biostatistics, and computational biology tools.

Registration is free but is required. The deadline to register is Thursday, March 15, 2012 and can be done here:

The LBRN was established in September 2001 with Biomedical Research Infrastructure Networks (BRIN) funding by the National Institutes of Health through a National Center for Research Resources grant. The LBRN is committed to raising the research competitiveness of Louisiana researchers. Currently, LBRN is in the third phase with continued funding by NIH and the Louisiana Board of Regents Support Fund.
