The 6th International Biocuration Conference is being held on April 7-10, 2013 at Churchill College, Cambridge, UK.
This meeting will provide a forum for biocurators and developers of biological databases to discuss their work, promote collaboration and foster a sense of community in this very active and growing area of research. Participants from academia, government, and industry interested in the methods and tools employed in curation of biological data are encouraged to attend, and to submit an abstract for consideration for an oral or poster presentation.
The conference will include four plenary talks featuring established scientists who have influenced the field of biocuration.The plenary speakers are: Fiona Brinkman, Ewan Birney, Richard Cotton and Sir Rich Roberts.
