Publication of the BioVis 2011 Highlights in BMC Bioinformatics & BioVis 2012
The organisers of BioVis are happy to announce the publication of the Highlights from the 1st IEEE Symposium on Biological Data Visualization (BioVis 2011, http://www.biovis.net) in BMC Bioinformatics:
The BioVis 2011 Highlights contain significantly expanded versions of the best papers presented at the meeting, addressing important visualization and exploration challenges in the areas of sequence alignments, metabolomics, biochemical simulations and screens, networks, pedigrees and expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL). By making these papers available in the open-access BMC Bioinformatics journal, we hope to foster the knowledge transfer between the bioinformatics, biology and visualization communities.
Given the growing need for visualization tools to gain insight into large and complex data sets that are becoming increasingly common in biology, the papers included in this collection will be relevant to scientists in bioinformatics, biology and data visualization.
Fancy a trip to Seattle?
If data visualization is relevant to your work, you should plan to attend BioVis 2012. The symposium will be taking place on October 14-15, 2012 in Seattle, WA and is co-located with the IEEE VisWeek meeting. Poster and contest submissions will be accepted until 27 June 2012. BioVis is an interdisciplinary event and we strongly encourage the participation of experts in bioinformatics, biology and data visualization to establish an ongoing dialog between these communities, which so far has been very limited.
