The 9th Poznan Summer School of Bioinformatics was held on 5th-10th July 2010. The lectures and classes covered the following subjects: databases and sequence alignments, phylogenetic analyses, sequencing and sequence assembly, gene identification, regulatory regions analysis, miRNAs and their targets, EST analysis, microarray analysis in medical research, protein analysis, 3D structures modelling and systems biology.

This wealth of knowledge and expertise was brought to our 40 international participants by thirteen scientists from seven countries:

Gaston Gonnet (keynote speaker), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich  

  • Boris Adryan, University of Cambridge  

  • Jacek Dabert, Adam Mickiewicz University  

  • Artemis Hatzigeorgiou, B.S.R.C. Alexander Fleming

  • Izabela Makalowska, Adam Mickiewicz University  

  • Wojciech Makalowski, Muenster University  

  • Amit Pande, Muenster University  

  • Yutaka Suzuki, University of Tokyo  

  • January Weiner, Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology  

  • Piotr Zielenkiewicz, Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics  

It is our tradition during Poznan Summer School of Bioinformatics to combine science and entertainment. In 2010 we organised an intensive sightseeing excursion across Poznan. We visited the Old Town with all its mysterious and beatiful houses and churches, as well as the surroundings of Malta Lake - a piece of holiday atmosphere in the middle of the city.

One evening we stayed at the Faculty of Biology and in informal and friendly atmosphere we had a chat at the barbecue. It is worth mentioning that it was a very important year for football fans so we also spent some time on cheering on and watching 2010 FIFA World Cup.
