Welcome to the Bioinformatics Interest Group (BIG) @ Emory!

The Bioinformatics Interest Group is a collection of statistician, computer scientists and biologists who are interested in the general area of bioinformatics and computational biology, including genetics, genomics, proteomics and other omics areas. The main purpose of the group is to promote collaborations, share research ideas and invoke interests from students.

There is a weekly group meeting take the form of a informal seminar with one person present his/her own research work or a recent publication. Regular attendees include faculty members and students from the Departments of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics, Human Genetics, Mathematics and Computer Science, Winship Cancer Center, Center for Comprehensive Informatics. We are planning to establish and maintain close connection with local peer institutes including University of Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State University. We regularly attracted 15-20 attendees for these meetings.
