Scientists from Europe and the United States worked together for a week to identify computational challenges and opportunities in sequencing data and emerging experimental technologies.
According to the website, the workshop's key goal is a "free and deep exchange of ideas and needs between the communities of algorithmicists and theoreticians and practitioners from the biomedical field. On the one hand, state-of-the-art methods from computer science will be presented to experimentalists. On the other hand, leading experimentalists will present novel techniques and sketch problems arising from these techniques. Following this exchange we will discuss the implications that new types of data or experimental protocols have on the needed algorithms or data structures."
