  Biological data are scattered across thousands of biological databases and hundreds of scientific journals. Current high throughput genomics technologies generate large quantities of high dimensional data. The challenge for Integrative Bioinformatics in the e-Science age is to capture, model, integrate, and analyse data generated in high throughput experiments in a consistent way. The aim is to provide systematic and integrative insights into complex biological systems.
This ninth meeting on Integrative Bioinformatics will be of interest to Bioinformaticians, Computer Scientists, Systems Biologists, and others working in, or interested in finding out more about, the developing area of integrative bioinformatics. There will be opportunities to present and discuss methods, theoretical approaches, and their practical applications.
IB2013 is organized by the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) Gatersleben and IMBio e.V.
