The School of Biology, Computation, and Information (BCI), reaching this year its sixth edition, aims at bringing together Teachers and Students in Biology, Mathematics, and Computer Science. The main goal of the School is to give an updated overview of interdisciplinary techniques and problems cross-bordering the three fields.
This year’s edition will be dedicated to discuss the different points of view on Bioinformatics typical of the two main sub-communities of computationally oriented scientists working in the field. The central question that will be addressed is whether the more algorithmic or more systemic approach to Bioinformatics is going to lead the way in the future.
The three distinguished speakers for this year’s edition are Jasmin Fisher (Biology), Eugene Myers
(Computer Science), and Bud Mishra (Mathematics) and the school will take place during the fourth week of September (September 20-24, 2010).
