To probe the status and dynamics of biology from molecular to organism scales, scientists have developed many instruments to measure the features of spectroscopy, crystallography, chromatography, electro-physiology, genome sequencing, metabolomics, flow cytometry and molecular imaging. Through the multi-dimensional information, people try to understand the underlying mechanisms of biology, find differentiable diagnosis features, and develop strategies for disease treatments. The algorithm to efficiently process data and effectively extract the specific features will be a critical step toward these goals. This mini-symposium will invite data scientists with field insights to dissect biological or medical questions from different approaches. We will also discuss how to integrate and visualize the matrices of data to form a meaningful digital library and how to use them in practical applications. 

The topics will include but not limited to: 

●  The Algorithm Development for the Signal Processing 
●  Structure Reconstruction
●  Image Segmentation
●  Feature Extraction
●  Dimension Reduction 
●  Machine Learning
●  Network Analysis of Biomedical Information

The information format could be biomedical images, electro-physiological traces, X-ray or electron diffraction, biochemical assay, genomic, proteomic, and metabolomic data.
