We are biologists, computer scientists and informaticians interested in decoding 'OMICS' data. Our goal is to promote and train researchers in Latin America the use of open source software in Bioinformatics using the Bioconductor project.
The advent of large scale sequencing data have increased significantly during the past few years and many big and small laboratories, are utilizing this technology to answer very specific biological questions. For example, one might be interested in understanding the genomic changes of the DNA methylation pattern between normal and tumor samples. In this course, we will explore a facet of different bioinformatic tools and methods used in the genomic field to assist in interpreting and analyzing large-scale data. We will introduce methods to identify handle and process sequencing data using R/Bioconductor, a popular tool used to explore and visualize large-scale data.

The Brazilian Genetics Society holds its next meeting in the city of Águas de Lindenow, the Convention Center Hotel Monte Real Resort, 16-19 of September. The theme of the 59th Congress of the SBG will be ’60 years post-DNA’, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the elucidation of the structure of DNA by Watson and Crick.
June 4, 2013 – FMRP/USP hosted an event to commemorate the discovery of the structure of the DNA (60 years) and human genome sequence (10 years). For more information, visit this site:
