On behalf of the STATegra consortium our group is participating in the organization of a workshop titled “Statistical Methods for Omics Data Integration and Analysis”. The workshop will take place in November 10-12, 2014 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece. It is organized as part of the dissemination efforts of the STATegra FP7 EU project, titled “User-driven Development of Statistical Methods for Experimental Planning, Data Gathering, and Integrative Analysis of Next Generation Sequencing, Proteomics and Metabolomics data”. The workshop includes an impressive panel of invited speakers, such as Dr. John Storey, Dr. Andrew Teschendorff, Dr. Sven Nelander and Pr. Michael Stumpf. The workshop is collocated with our annual project meeting, hence there will be the opportunity to interact with the members of the consortium.
