The NDEx Project among the exhibitors at ISMB 2016
Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) provides a multidisciplinary forum for disseminating the latest developments in bioinformatics and computational biology. Rather than participating with a poster or an oral presentation, the NDEx Project will be among the exhibitors, with the purpose of interfacing with scientists in a more informal manner, provide live hands-on demo sessions, get insights on new interesting content and applications as well as finding new potential collaborators. Come see us at booth #16 to learn more about NDEx, its pivotal role in the future of the Cytoscape Cyberinfrastructure and get a chance to win a flat screen TV!
ISMB 2016 will be held at the Swan and Dolphin Hotel in Orlando, FL, July 8-12.

Epigenetics and Therapy
This month we feature an article that describes the progress toward therapeutic epigenetics. In his report, Dr A. DePalma highlights epigenetics diagnostic relevance, how it benefits from the technological advances in Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies and what are the obstacles that still need to be overcome. >> READ FULL ARTICLE
Hurry up for the Open Science Prize Challenge
The Open Science Prize is a partnership between the Wellcome Trust, the US National Institute of Health (NIH) and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and provides funding to support the prototyping (Phase I) and development (Phase II) of services, tools or platforms that enable open content to be discovered and re-used thus allowing faster progress without re-inventing the wheel over and over. FAQ and other resource to help applicants are available on the Open Science Prize website. The deadline for entries for the Phase I prize is February 29, 2016 ... get on it!
