DescriptionThe Nordic countries are active in area of bioinformatics. This area is a key element in contemporary life science, from medicine, over the environment to industrial biotechnology. Many of the state-of-the-art data analysis methods and algorithms are developed in the Nordics, adding considerable visibility to this region. Furthermore, a number of large life science investments have been made recently in the Nordic countries. The Nordic countries have taken pivotal roles in European infrastructures within the bio- and medical sciences. The session will point to the frontiers of research within the area and point to directions for Nordic e-Infrastructure development aimed at bioinformatics and life sciences. Speakers include Tommy Nyrönen (CSC) and Erik Lindahl (Stockholm University).
