NCTS International Conference on Probability and Statistics with Applications in Biology

July 14-16, 2010



Conference Aims:
Numerous fascinating breakthroughs in biotechnology have generated large volumes and diverse types of high throughput data. The data demand the development of efficient and appropriate tools in probability and statistics integrated with biological knowledge and computational algorithms.  This conference plans to invite leading researchers to survey many active research topics and promote the visibility of this research area.  This conference is intended to provide interaction for researchers who are interested in the recent developments of probability and statistics in biology
