Last Tuesday, the 8th floor of the RILMS building provided the stage for the Radboud Technology Center for Bioinformatics event titled “From -omics data to biological knowledge”. The two main speakers, Professors Edwin Cuppen from the UMC Utrecht and Peter-Bram ‘t Hoen from the CMBI @ Radboud UMC, gave an overview of how to translate results from X-omics and Bioinformatics research to gain deep insight into human developmental biology and disease (de)regulation.In-between these talks there was a nutritious lunch and plenty of discussion concerning the question how the RTC can pave the best path forward to advance the usage of Bioinformatics tools and software throughout the Radboud campus. Nearly everyone chimed in, with their own experiences of learning and doing biological data analysis. Dozens of suggestions were shared and discussed by our Wynand Alkema.
If the temperature was a accurate metric for the heated debates and volume of participants, then we can easily conclude that the networking and the talks were a resounding success! I personally want to thank the speakers Peter-Bram, Edwin and Wynand, and the organizers Hanka Venselaar, Barbara van Kampen and Anouk Suppers for making it happen. Furthermore, I am grateful that you, the audience came to meet us in such big numbers.
This event is an example of how we at the RTC Bioinformatics see our mission; user experience and impactful scientific insights must come first. We want to be the enablers, to position the application of these computational methodologies in such a way that it adds benefit and value for our partners and clients, instead of creating complexities. We want to get people together to share solutions and stories about their analysis. And within that capacity, we are at your service!
