Call for Participation

The 24th annual MASAMB workshop will be held on April 9th/10th 2014 at Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN), Sheffield, UK

The deadline for submissions has passed, and registration is closed.

MASAMB will be followed by a one day workshop on statistical genomics sponsored by the RADIANT Project.


Bioinformatics and statistical genetics, twin themes of the long-running series of annual MASAMB meetings, have gained huge impetus from large-scale genome sequencing projects and development of high-throughput biological assay systems, including gene-expression microarrays, next generation sequencing, proteomic and metabolomic technologies. These immense data resources, and the underlying complexities of molecular and cell biology, provide exciting research opportunities for numerate scientists.

With a strictly limited number of participants from mathematics, statistics, computer science, bioinformatics, biology and related fields, MASAMB meetings provide an intimate setting for exchange of ideas in methodological and applied research. Research students and scientists newly entering the field of genomic research are particularly welcome.

MASAMB will be followed by a one day workshop on the mathematical and computational aspects of dealing with big data in the biological sciences, both in terms of allowing to fit more complex models and to extract more insight from available data. In particular, the goal is to present approaches that are able to combine weak evidence from multiple studies and integrate multivariate, high dimensional data types. The workshop will consist of invited talks followed by a discussion session.
