Introduction

Recent advances in genomic technologies have enabled an upwelling in multi-omics big data (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, microbiomics etc), and have significantly accelerated scientific discoveries in biological and medical research. Accompanying the growing volume and diversity of multi-omics big data are new challenges and opportunities in data sharing, data visualization, analytical methods for integration across data types, and applications in biological and medical studies.

This workshop aims to bring bioinformatics researchers from multi-disciplinary backgrounds together to share expertise in diverse aspects of multi-omics data integration. The themes will be centered around bioinformatics methods in biological and medical research and will range from: cutting-edge methods for multi-omics data acquisition (such as single cell multi-omics), multi-omics data resources, platforms to facilitate data sharing, challenges and approaches for data visualization and integration, new computational and bioinformatics methodologies and algorithms enabling multi-omics integration, and applications of multi-omics approaches. We may also invite several keynote speakers during the workshop.




Topics

For this workshop, we strongly encourage authors to submit their original studies in cutting-edge computational methods in multi-omics data integration (including genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, epigenomics, metabolomics, microbiomics etc). Possible topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:

• Statistical and computational methodologies to analyze high throughput data
• Computational methods for Single-cell RNA-seq data analysis
• Network and graph methods for multi-omics data analysis
• Computational methods for multi-omics data integration
• Computational methods for multi-omics data visualization
• Clinical prediction using co-data (metadata)
