Presented by the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics (DBHi) at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Penn's Institute for Biomedical Informatics (IBI), the second annual Mid-Atlantic Bioinformatics Conference will be held on Tuesday October 10, 2017. A distinguished line-up of internationally recognized speakers will discuss the role of epigenetics and 3-dimensional chromatin organization as it relates to primary analysis, integration with large-scale data from adult and pediatric data sets, and the growing challenges in integrating epigenomic data with other types of omics data in the era of precision medicine..

Poster Session
There will also be a poster session.
