Materials from Translational Bioinformatics Year in Review 2013

Thanks to all who contributed and showed interest in my talk today at the AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Science.  Thanks also to the amazing tweet army that did real time updates during the talk.   I am pleased to post this  year’s slides.  As usual, I take responsibility for any mistakes, mischaracterizations, or misjudgments.  The goal here is just to show the excitement of translational bioinformatics and some of the cool stuff that is happening. 

The slides from the 2013 annual review of TBI are available here.  

XML files (compatible with ENDNOTE and others) and a PDF bibliography are also available for the final list of papers (40 papers, xml, pdf), finalists (97, xml, pdf), semifinalists (240, xml, pdf), and quarterfinalists (348, xml, pdf).  

Previous slides are available for my talks in 2008, 200920102011 and 2012.  Enjoy!

Post suggestions for articles here any time, I have a place to keep them for when I turn my attention to this early each year. 

Translational Bioinformatics: 2011 Year in review

I gave my annual “Year in Review” talk to the AMIA Translational Bioinformatics Summit yesterday.  It covers papers from approximately Feb 2010 to Feb 2011. So it is really a review for 2010, but I deliver it in 2011, so thus the naming.  We have made great progress and so it was hard to choose papers to highlight.  The slides are here.  I have also posted the slides from previous years.

Call for great papers in translational bioinformatics.

As you may know, I review the field of translational bioinformatics each year in an attempt to highlight key papers and trends from the year.   I present this review at the AMIA Summit on Translational Bioinformatics.  I review papers published in the period from January 2010 through February 2011.   I am now accepting nominations for excellent papers that deserve highlighting, you can send your own work, but nominations of other people’s work is even more compelling.

I define “translational bioinformatics” fairly broadly as any informatics work developing or applying methods that link basic molecular, genetic, and cellular data to clinical concepts such as drugs, diseases, symptoms and patients.

If you would like to get a sense for the papers I have highlighted in the past, you can see them on a previous post to this blog.

I would like your nominations (add them as comment here, or email me) by February 15, so that I can narrow things down to the final list.  As always, I will make the list available as the slides from my talk at the AMIA TB summit, as well as an endnote library.

Thanks and Happy New Year!
