AR-BIC 2019: It’s a whole new consortium

The Arkansas Bioinformatics Consortium (AR-BIC), held this year on February 25 – February 26, 2019, is an Arkansas-centric bioinformatics community aimed at developing, leveraging, and enhancing state-wide scientific collaboration, thus forming a stable environment available to support the Arkansas-wide research, education, training, and entrepreneurial/industrial activities in life sciences-related computing.


This year, we’ve instituted a number of exciting changes, including:

  • A new theme: Bioinformatics in Food and Agriculture
  • A new poster contest, with $2000 in cash prizes
  • A new location: UAMS Jackson T. Stephens Spine and Neurosciences Institute (Little Rock, AR)
  • Workshops: a series of concurrent, hands-on, pre-conference workshops focusing on data analytics
