The Bioinformatics Infrastructure Congress launches in Boston on May 7-9, 2019

Friday, March 15th 2019 at 10:30am UTC

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The Bioinformatics
Infrastructure Congress
is the first bioinformatics
conference that is solely focussed on tools and unit set-up, rather than
application. Join 100+ senior IT, data and informatics professionals
looking to modernize research infrastructure for life sciences.

The volume of biological data available to drug companies today requires
increasingly sophisticated tools for storage, sharing and analysis.
Machine learning, cloud, data commons and quantum computing all offer
important discovery prospects for in silico units. But they also present
problems such as build vs buy debate, overcoming cultural differences
between biologists and data scientists, standardization and
interoperability challenges. The Bioinformatics Infrastructure Congress
enables IT and computational biology heads from pharma, biotech and
academia to explore how to implement new tools and optimize data
storage, security, visualization and analysis.

Case studies to be discussed include the Broad Institute’s Dr Anthony
Philippakis on how to take best-practice from the tech sector to set up
a best-in-class data management centre, the NIH’s Vivien Bonazzi on
progress from the NIH Data Commons Pilot Phase and plans for the
immediate future as well as MedImmune’s Dr David Fenstermacher on how to
integrate data at high volumes so that it is still usable within an

The congress also features a dedicated Machine Learning Day on Tuesday,
May 7th. As drug companies, researchers and health providers
update their data management infrastructure the use of Machine Learning
tools in life sciences is finally here. The Machine Learning Day takes
participants beyond the “what if” and explores how AI and other advanced
analytic tools are being used today.

Hear from Dr Ramesh Dursuvala, Vice President and Information Officer,
Research Labs on addressing bottlenecks in data collection and
standardisation to train ML systems at Eli Lilly; Dr Kelly Zou, Vice
President, Head of Medical Analytics and Insights, R&D and Medical,
Upjohn Division on changing clinical trial design and execution using
algorithms at Pfizer and Mason Victors, Chief Technology Officer on
implementing custom data-build to programme an AI for compound discovery
and first steps in the clinic at Recursion Pharmaceuticals.
