International experts in structural biology, such as Nobel laureate Ada E. Yonath, and in massive genomic analysis, such as the bioinformatician Chris Sander—one of the fathers of biocomputation—, are gathering in Barcelona this week with the aim to identify synergies and throw light on the jumble of massive biological data currently available.

The Barcelona Biomed Conference organised by IRB Barcelona and the BBVA Foundation will be held from today 28 to 30 November at the Institut d’Estudis Catalans.

This afternoon, there will be an open debate on “Women in science”, chaired by Ada E. Yonath.
