This 3-day hands-on workshop introduces participants to the development of fast and scalable structural bioinformatics methods using state-of-the-art Big Data technologies and Web-GL 3D visualization. The first two days of the workshop combine lectures, hands-on applications, and programming sessions. On the third day participants apply the new technologies to their own projects. This workshop is held at the University of California, San Diego and hosted by the Structural Bioinformatics Laboratory at SDSC in collaboration with the RCSB Protein Data Bank.
This workshop is sponsored by the NIH Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) initiative. Air travel and 4-day lodging will be provided for non-commercial participants, including a limited number of international participants. Applications will be accepted through Sunday, April 30, 2017.
