Talk on Hodgkin lymphoma cell graphs at ISMB 2016

It’s been a while since I went to the Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB) 2016 conference, but I thought I’d still share a few impressions.

The conference was held at a Disney Resort Hotel near Orlando, FL. Great weather, but not a good place to be as a PhD student who is short on money.

I am working on two projects in the fields of digital pathology/imaging and protein topology in my PhD. I submitted a paper we recently published in Bioinformatics to the highlight track and it was accepted, and I was also given a $ 1000 travel grant (thanks to the RNA group at ISCB!). So I went to the conference directly after a returning from a trip to Indonesia.

The conference was well organized and interesting. There were very few contributions from the field of digital pathology, but quite a few interesting talks on structural biology. I especially enjoyed the keynotes by Ruth Nussinov on Ras signaling and by Deborah Marks on Molecular structure and organism fitness from genomic sequences.

My highlight talk was at the last day of the conference, but I got some good questions afterwards and also met interesting people at the poster sessions that were held earlier during the conference.
