Swiss Genomics Forum 2019

As genome analysis becomes commonplace in research and clinics, Switzerland has much to offer in terms of scientific strength, quality of its healthcare system (including universal coverage) and detailed patient phenotyping.

The Swiss Genomics Forum 2019 (SGF2019) organized by the Health 2030 Genome Center will take place on September 27, 2019 at the Campus Biotech in Geneva. The SGF2019 will bring together researchers, clinicians, patient communities, and other stakeholder groups to meet and discuss the future of genomics around the following topics: genomics, diseases, personalized health, data and collaboration.

[BC]2 2019

Big data in molecular medicine

The [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference is organized by the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB), and has become the key computational biology event in Switzerland uniting scientists working in a broad range of disciplines, including bioinformatics, computational biology, and systems biology. This year’s thematic focus is on the use of big data in molecular medicine. The conference will feature presentations of latest research results, workshops, tutorials, poster sessions, and keynote lectures by international experts.

The main [BC]2 conference will take place on September 10 & 11, 2019, at the Congress Centre in Basel, Switzerland as an integral part of the BASEL LIFE 2019 congress, giving [BC]2 attendants access to all of BASEL LIFE’s activities. The [BC]2 workshops and tutorials are on Monday, September 9 at the University of Basel.

OptoDBS 2019

State of the art of current therapies for deep brain stimulation

Pathological circuit function is at the origin of many symptoms of neurological disorders. The optogenetic toolbox applied to animal models of behavioral diseases has in the last years led to decisive progress with the hope that deep brain stimulation (DBS) may be used for rational treatments.

OptoDBS 2019 will discuss the state of the art of current therapies for DBS and ask how a better understanding of neural circuit dysfunction in pathology could inspire novel protocols. A particular emphasis will be on novel DBS indications such as obsessive compulsive disorders (OCD), depression or addiction. The meeting will take place from June 20 to 22, 2019, at the Campus Biotech in Geneva.

ISMB/ECCB 2019

27th annual ISMB conference & 18th annual ECCB

The annual international conference on Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) is the flagship meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB). Joining forces with the annual European Conference on Computational Biology (ECCB), ISMB/ECCB 2019 will bring together scientists from computer science, molecular biology, mathematics, statistics and related fields from July 21 to 25, 2019, at the Congress Centre in Basel, Switzerland.

ISMB/ECCB 2019 is the largest and most high profile annual meeting of scientists working in computational biology and provides an intense multidisciplinary forum for disseminating the latest developments in computational tools for data driven biological research.
