* Please forward this Call for Participation to interested Colleagues *


PURPOSE OF THE COURSE
The Twentieth century is often referred as the Century of Biology, as 
evidenced by the extraordinary development of this scientific area who 
concluded that century with the great success of the Human Genome Project and 
the subsequent complete sequencing of human DNA. 
Currently we are at the beginning of the so-called Post-Genomic Era, 
characterized on one hand by the availability of a huge amount of 
Bioinformatics data (often in the public domain), and on the other hand by the 
need for new and efficient mathematical methods and algorithms capable of 
distill the information contained in the data. As a matter of fact, the 
emphasis of research in Bioinformatics is shifting from the development of 
efficient data storing and handling methods, to the one of methods able to 
extract useful information from data. 
Computational Intelligence methodologies (that is, neural networks, 
evolutionary algorithms and fuzzy logic), partly inspired by natural systems, 
are a family of powerful methods for data analysis, able to transform the 
available heterogeneous data into biological knowledge. In recent years, these 
algorithms have been successfully applied in almost all areas of 
Bioinformatics to the solution of complex problems concerning signal analysis, 
classification, clustering, feature selection, and data mining and 
visualization.

The course covers the applications of Computational Intelligence methods  to 
the analysis of Bioinformatics data, with particular focus on applications in 
oncology.
It is addressed to PhD students and researchers in Bioinformatics, Computer 
Science, Mathematics and Engineering, and includes:
- theoretical lectures introducing the main aspects of Bioinformatics and 
Computational Intelligence methodologies;
- lectures aimed to analyze some significant case studies of data analysis in 
oncology bioinformatics;
- practical classes showing some relevant applications of Computational 
Intelligence methods to Bioinformatics data.
