Young Scientists School
Big data analysis in biology: challenges and solutions

The School aims to bring together researchers in computational and biological sciences in to present latest results to young scientists in fine details. The format of a school will allow young scientists not only to follow the logic of the research but also understand the challenges of the research and the ways to overcome them. The school will also help exchange ideas and develop networks for international collaboration.
