GARNet and the Exeter Centre for the Study of the Life Sciences (Egenis) are excited to announce a two-day workshop on ‘Integrating Large Data into Plant Science: From Big Data to Discovery’ to be held in the picturesque Dartington Hall, Totnes, Devon on April 21st-22nd 2016. https://www.dartington.org/visit/stay/
The aims of this workshop are to:
1. Introduce examples of how researchers have re-used datasets in innovative ways.
2. Examine the intrastructure that exists to support the re-use of large datasets
3. Discuss the mechanisms by which the community deals with big data.
We have an exciting program with speakers from across academia, industry and the scientific journals and includes Nick Provart (Bio-Analytic Resource, Toronto), Carole Goble CBE (Manchester), Angela Hancock (MFPL, Vienna), Gordon Simpson (JHI, Dundee), Eva Huala (Phoenix Bioinformatics) and Matt Vaughn (Texas Advanced Computing Centre).

We have kind support from the ERC and the BBSRC so registration for this workshop will be free although we will be limiting the number of delegates. In addition there will be limited number of rooms available at Dartington Hall at a reduced rate.
