Cancer Informatics

The Cancer Informatics track explores the important technology, informatics trends, and challenges of applying computational biology to cancer research and care. Themes that will be covered in expert-led presentations include: collaboration and network models; data access/management/integration strategies; and applications of biological interpretation to aid in research at the benchside or care at the bedside. Most clinical diagnoses involve the use of clinical testing, much of which is not standardized locally/nationally/internationally. How do your approaches address this reality?
