    Events: CfP: Automated Function Prediction SIG at ISMB 2011
    Submitted by Iddo Friedberg; posted on Thursday, March 03, 2011


    DATES: July 15-16, 2011
    LOCALE: Vienna, Austria (ISMB 2011)

    Sequence and structure genomics have generated a wealth of data, but extracting meaningful information from genomic information is becoming an increasingly difficult challenge. Both the number and the diversity of discovered sequences are increasing, while the fraction of genes whose function is known is decreasing.In addition, there is a need for annotation which is standardized so that it could be incorporated into function annotation on a large scale. Finally, there is a need to assess the quality of the function prediction software which is out there.

    The AFP SIG has been part of ISMB since 2005. This year the AFP SIG will feature CAFA: Critical Assessment of Function Annotations. Over 30 research groups from around the world are participating in CAFA. In late 2010, these groups have used computational tools to predict the function for a large set of protein sequences. The accuracy of these predictions will be assessed at this year's AFP meeting.
