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.
