Workshop Location

DILS 2006 will take place at the Wellcome Trust Conference Center at the campus of the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in Hinxton, UK (near Cambridge). The EBI is one of the largest centers world-wide for hosting, managing, and developing data management and data analysis systems for the Life Sciences. It hosts and contributes to the maintenance of a number of very important databases in this area, such as UniProt, Ensembl, InterPro, and the European branch of the International Nucleotide Sequence Database. Furthermore, the institute is situated side-by-side with the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, one of the biggest genome research institutes in the world. Together, the EBI and the Sanger Centre have created an inspiring atmosphere that has turned Cambridge into of the largest centers for Biotech companies in the United Kingdom.
