On Monday March 4th. a fire destroyed the Science Center of Città della Scienza in Napoli, Italy.
Investigators are working to determine the causes of the fire. Whatever the results of the investigations will be, however, the situation now is such that the exhibition activities are temporarily interrupted, while those at the Conference Center continue uninterruptedly.
We ask you to support the Città della Scienza and we would be very grateful if you could make a donation for the future of Città della Scienza.
We are pleased to share with you this exclusive video, showcasing an event on the impact of science and technology networks on Europe’s society. COST Science Night – How S&T Networks Impact Tomorrow’s Europe was held last December, 4th – 2012.
This exclusive event showcased the impact of science and technology networks on Europe’s society. At this unique science night researchers leading successful COST networks met research policy-makers and stakeholders for interactive discussions… and fun experiments!
The goal of this pilot Variation Calling Challenge is to analyze existing or new pipelines for variant calling in terms of accuracy and efficiency. Participants will use their variation calling pipelines on public datasets and they will have the same amount of time to run the tools and collect the results. We provide different simulated data sets for the analysis.

SeqAhead and AllBio joined forces to create a 3 day workshop with presentations on non-coding RNA (ncRNA) research, bioinformatics, data analysis and stimulate discussions between biologists and bioinformaticians. Further we will have a hack-a-thon approaching data analysis bottlenecks.
SeqAhead created a special interest group on research and data analysis of ncRNA. AllBio instead collected during its first project year test cases of data analysis problems in biology. Two test cases on data analysis of ncRNA sequencing where selected and will be process further.
biologists with research in ncRNA applying or planning to apply Next Generation Sequencing technologies,
bioinformaticians involved in data analysis or developing algorithms for ncRNA data.
Excellent abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. SeqAhead will reimburse travel and accommodation.
Registration and abstract submission: 29 March 2013
