<http://gcc2016.iu.edu/>*) features two days of presentations, discussions,
poster sessions, lightning talks, computer demos, keynotes, and
birds-of-a-feather meetups, *all about data-intensive biology and the tools
that support it*. Keynote speaker Yoav Gilad
<http://genes.uchicago.edu/directory/yoav-gilad-phd/>, a professor of human
genetics at the University of Chicago, will kick-start the main conference
with a discussion on the analysis of large gene regulatory data sets.
Preconference events include data

in data-intensive biomedical research around the world.

Galaxy <https://galaxyproject.org/> is an open, web-based platform for
data-intensive biomedical research and enables easy interactive analysis
through the web on arbitrarily large data sets. The Galaxy framework is a
major resource in achieving key research goals within the biological field.
It provides next-generation sequencing (NGS) tools and workflows for
short-read mapping, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, metagenomics, variant analysis,
visualization, and support for Galaxy in the cloud. There are hundreds of
local installs, and *over 80 publicly accessible servers
<https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/PublicGalaxyServers>* around the world.

*Abstract submission <https://gcc2016.iu.edu/abstracts/index.php>** for
oral presentations closes April 8. *Abstract submission for posters and
computer demonstrations closes May 20.
