2016 Program and Presentations

Jan. 11, 2016: Arabidopsis Information Portal (AIP) and the International Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium (IAIC)This workshop was co-organized by the Arabidopsis Information Portal (AIP) and the International Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium (IAIC) and included presentations on the development of the AIP, how the AIP will be built in a sustainable, internationally-driven manner, and how it will be connected with a broad array of community-generated modules and their associated data.

On behalf of the IAIC and NAASC, Joanna Friesner gave a presentation entitled “Community Collaborations: Advancing Arabidopsis Research and Training (ART-21) and the International Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium (IAIC)”.

2015 Program and Presentations

Jan. 12, 2015: The International Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium (IAIC) and development of the Arabidopsis Information Portal (AIP)
This workshop, co-organized by the Arabidopsis Information Portal (AIP) and the International Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium (IAIC) presented the development of a stable data and resources repository for Arabidopsis bioinformatics to serve the global plant research community. Included were presentations by plant biologists and computational experts on how the Arabidopsis Informatics Portal will be built in a sustainable, internationally-driven manner, and how it will be connected with a broad array of community-generated modules and their associated data.

Organized by:  Blake C. Meyers, IAIC Interim Director and Chris Town, AIP Principal Investigator.
