… to the workshop: “Statistical Methods for Omics Data Integration and Analysis“
Heraklion, Crete, Greece, November 10-12, 2014
Host and Venue: Foundation for Research and Technology, Hellas
This workshop aims to bring together researchers in the fields of biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, statistics, biostatistics, machine learning, data mining, and pattern recognition that work on the analysis of omics data (e.g., transcriptomics, metabolomics, genomics) and particularly researchers that focus on developing new methods of integrating data, integrating their visualization, and integrating analysis of multiple and heterogeneous datasets. More details of the objectives of the workshop are here .
The Workshop Programme consists of invited talks by prominent researchers in the field, presentations of extended abstracts, poster presentations, and social events. Interested authors can find more information here. The Workshop Programme is here.
A panel of prominent keynote speakers will present in the workshop:
- Jesper Tegner, Karolinska Institute
- Andrew Teschendorff, UCL, London
- Sven Nelander, Uppsala University

In addition, the workshop will be attended by most STATegra partners.
Organized by: the STATegra consortium
STATegra (stategra.eu) is an FP7 European project. The STATegra project aims to develop new statistical methods and tools for the integrative analysis of diverse omics data for a more efficient use of the genomics technologies. Furthermore we aim to make them readily available to the research community through rapid and efficient implementation as user-friendly software packages. Among the data-types we consider: mRNA-seq, miRNA-seq, Methyl-seq, Chip-seq, DNase-seq, Proteomics and Metabolomics. In addition we will develop methods for data gathering, management and integration in Knowledge Databases and Ontologies. We will deliver statistical methodologies to generalize meta-analysis of heterogeneous datasets (e.g., different experimental conditions) to address the issues of values missing-by-design, limited availability, poor quality (“dirty”) data and individually insufficiently powered studies.
