Visualizing Biological Data (VIZBI 2014)

The 2nd EMBO Conference on Visualizing Biological Data (VIZBI 2014) - also the 5th international meeting on this topic - will be held from the 5th to the 7th of March 2014 at EMBL-Heidelberg in Germany. VIZBI brings together scientists, illustrators, and designers actively using or developing computational visualization to study a diverse range of biological data.

The conference features 21 invited talks that review the state-of-the-art and challenges in visualizing data from genomes, transcripts, proteins, cells, organisms, and populations. Prior to the meeting, on 4th March, will be 12 tutorials on key visualization tools & methods. Tutorial topics will be decided by the call for Tutorial Proposals, and be finalized in December.
