I have agreed once again to give a talk at the AMIA Summit on Translational Bioinformatics ) on the “year in review” highlighting some of the most important papers in our field of translational bioinformatics. Last year’s talk is online.
I am writing to request that you nominate papers that you think are important for me to include from the last 12-15 months. Nominations of your own papers are fine, but much less compelling than nominations of others’ papers (you can collude though…). Here are the criteria:
- I define translational bioinformatics broadly, but expect it to involve molecular-level (genes, small molecules) data AND clinical-level data (diseases, symptoms, drugs)
- I define bioinformatics as the creation and application of novel methods of analysis/discovery
I have been trolling the sites myself, but want to make sure I ask colleagues in bioinformatics for their thoughts.
I would like to highlight papers that have done a good, creative job at the above, and have a chance to become “classics” over the next 10-20 years. I expect to discuss about ~15 papers in “1-2 slide” detail and then to have another list of 10 “noteworthy but not discussed in detail” papers.
I would like these nominations by 5 PM on 3/11. Thanks for your help. If you don’t want to post publically, you can send to me by email at russ.altman-at-stanford.edu.
