Today was the beginning of the 3rd annual Biocuration Conference & I’ve already heard an interesting talk by Janet Thornton of EBI. She gave a talk entitled “Data Curation in Biology – Past, Present and Future.” Then Pascale Gaudet spoke on the inauguration of the International Society for Biocuration. Janet talked about lots of interesting things including PDB & some future aims for bioinformatics in Europe. Pascale promised more details on the society as the meeting progresses & I’ll pass on any info that I hear.
Tomorrow morning is only about 9 hours away – I’m still on US Eastern time instead of Berlin time – but tomorrow’s plenary talk from Phil Bourne should be well worth a few extra cups of cappuccino!
More from Berlin later!
