The Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB) Conference was held on the Big Island of Hawaii on January 4-8th. This international, multidisciplinary conference provided a platform for presentation and discussion of current research in the theory and application of computational methods in problems consisting of biological significance.
Jessie Tenenbaum, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics and Chair of AMIA’s Genomics and Translational Bioinformatics Working Group, led two sections on “Translational Bioinformatics 101”. The two sections Dr. Tenenbaum presented specifically focused on “Omics for Drug Discovery and Repurposing” and “Personal genomic testing and related ethical, legal, and social issues.”
