ISMB 2016, the 24th annual conference Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) and the largest computational biology conference, begins today in Orlando, Florida. In addition to the 5-day main ISMB conference, it also hosts 11 Special Interest Group meetings, and two satellite meetings, like HitSeq,RegGenSIG,BioVis, and BOSC.
The International Society of Computational Biology (ISCB), the society behind ISMB, will be awarding
- Søren Brunak of the Technical University of Denmark: 2016 Accomplishment by a Senior Scientist Award,
- Debora Marks of Harvard Medical School: Overton Prize,
- Burkhard Rost of the Technical University of Munich: Outstanding Contributions to ISCB Award,
- Serafim Batzoglou of Stanford University: ISCB Innovator Award
Here are a few interesting papers with sequencing flavor.
- RapMap: a rapid, sensitive and accurate tool for mapping RNA-seq reads to transcriptomes by , , , and
- Genome assembly from synthetic long read clouds by , , and
- Prediction of ribosome footprint profile shapes from transcript sequences by and
- Compacting de Bruijn graphs from sequencing data quickly and in low memory by , , and
