The annual seminar of academic commission and academic workshop of CAS Key Laboratory of Genome Sciences & Information were held on Jan 22. The Vice director of institute, WANG Liping, who is also the member of academic commission of key Lab, has participated in the seminar. The participants were consisting of faculties, scientists, technicians and students of each research groups. Prof. HU Songnian, the director of Key Lab, presented the seminar. The seminar lasted for 2 days.

Firstly, WANG Liping expressed appreciation to all the participants, and proposed new expectation for the all members: to work harder together to solve more complex scientific problems, in the hope of leading the Key Lab to one of the most excellent laboratories of the CAS. Prof. HU Songnian introduced the progression of the key Lab in 2017 and anticipate challenges and expectations in the future. Prof. LIU Jiang and Prof. BAO Yiming summarized their work in the past year from two major fields of epigenetics and medical big data respectively. In the next discussion session, the members of academic commission also discussed on several topics including the leading role of Key Lab on the development of genomics and bioinformatics, the directions of future studies, the impact and better scientific services for the public and community, the teamwork and cooperation with top-level domestic groups, the influences of epidemic microbes on public safety and the analysis of biological big data.

In the afternoon, the second part of the workshop focused on the big data processing. Prof. QU Lianghu form Sun Yat-Sen University gave the talk on classification of cell phenotype based on RNA indicators. Mr. WU Zhangxian from China Telecom gave the talk on the construction of cloud infrastructure for biological big data processing. Prof. BAO Yiming from BIGD gave the talk on the trend of construction and development of big data center nowadays and in the future, and had a deep discussion with all participants on many topics on big data analysis and management.
