HCS/HCA Informatics and Data Analysis – Best Practices and Unmet Needs

SBI2 led an Informatics and Data Analysis Colloquium on the first day of the 2015 SBI2 Annual Conference: an exciting opportunity for attendees to join a guided roundtable discussion on the key informatics and data analysis challenges that HCS practitioners encounter. Each topic was led by a topic discussion leader who solicited feedback from the high content screening/high content analysis (HCS/HCA) community before the conference. Each topic discussion included an introduction by the topic leader, presentations from community participants, and an open discussion with all attendees.

“What would you consider are the biggest problems/issues for HCS?”

There were ∼80 people at the colloquium, including education session instructors, scientific program presenters, attendees, and vendors.

The topic discussion leaders were as follows:

• Jason Swedlow, University of Dundee


• Paul Johnston, University of Pittsburgh


• Bartek Rajwa, University of Purdue


• Peter Horvath, ETH Zurich


• Steven Haney, Eli Lilly and Company
