LINCS program highlighted in Nature Outlook article, Genetics: Big hopes for big data (Nature 527, S108–S109 | doi:10.1038/527S108a)

Systems Biology Data Science Symposium

January 19-20, 2016: The BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center and the University of Miami will host the two-day Systems Biology Data Science Symposium (SBDSS 2016) designed to bring together the BD2K-LINCS DCIC, local researchers, and outside experts who apply or develop computational systems biology resources.

Summer Research Training Program

The BD2K-LINCS Data Coordination and Integration Center’s Summer Research Training Program in Biomedical Big Data Science is currently accepting applications for summer session 2016. The application deadline is March 4, 2016View 2016 poster

The LINCS Consortium

LINCS aims to create a network-based understanding of biology by cataloging changes in gene expression and other cellular processes that occur when cells are exposed to a variety of perturbing agents, and by using computational tools to integrate this diverse information into a comprehensive view of normal and disease states that can be applied for the development of new biomarkers and therapeutics. By generating and making public data that indicates how cells respond to various genetic and environmental stressors, the LINCS project will help us gain a more detailed understanding of cell pathways and aid efforts to develop therapies that might restore perturbed pathways and networks to their normal states.

The LINCS website is a source of information for the research community and general public about the LINCS project. The website contains details about the assays, cell types, and perturbagens currently part of the library, as well as links to participating sites, the data releases from the sites, and software that can be used for analyzing the data.
