The SING research group has been developed many Bioinformatics applications since the last 8 years. Here you can find a timeline summarizing some of the most successful ones!

Cinbio: nuevo centro singular de investigación de Galicia

El Centro de Investigaciones Biomédicas o Cinbio, nacido con la finalidad de crear una infraestructura común para el persoal investigador especializado en biomedicina de la Universidad de Vigo, se convierte en nuevo centro singular de investigación de Galicia.

Gracias a esta denominación, el Cinbio, en el que el grupo SING se encuentra integrado, recibirá 250.000 euros este 2016 y medio millón de euros en los años 2017, 2018 y 2019, hasta completar el total de 1,7 millones de euros de la ayuda. "Esto supone realmente un reconocimiento a la calidad de los investigadores de Cinbio y va a permitir dar más visibilidad a la excelencia que existe en la Universidad en el ámbito de la biomedicina", asegura África González, directora del Cinbio.

BioCreative V.5 call for participation

BeCalm has just announced that the BioCreative V.5 Challenge is now open. In line with previous BioCreative challenges, the result of participating teams will be presented at the BioCreative V.5. evaluation workshop, similar to previous BioCreative events, that will take place in Madrid (Spain) in March 2017.

The BioCreative V.5 Challenge will address:

  • The development and evaluation of named entity recognition systems for chemical and gene/protein entity mentions.
  • The proof-of concept implementation of a continuous text annotation metaservice, called BeCalm.
SING group will be present in Transfiere 2016 forum with InNoCBR

The European Forum for Science, Technology and Innovation (Transfiere), which celebrates its 5th edition next 10th and 11th of February at Málaga (Spain), represents a business chance to find potential, technological partners of the scientific and business areas. Transfiere is the biggest professional and multi-sectoral forum of Spanish Innovation, involving public administrations, business associations, european centers of innovating companies, technology centers, clusters, companies (big, SMES, EBTs, and startups), foundations, institutes of technology, scientific and technological parks and universities.

In this year's edition, SING research group will participate with InNoCBR, an intelligent system for the detection and classification of nosocomial infection cases developed in collaboration with the Preventive Medicine Service at Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Ourense (CHUO) and the support of the University of Vigo.

Launching of the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

Thomson Reuters recently launched the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which extends the universe of publications in Web of Science in order to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. ESCI makes content visible in Web of Science Core Collection to key opinion leaders, evaluators and funders, even if it has not yet reached a notorious citation impact on an international audience.

Journals included in ESCI have passed a first editorial evaluation and can continue to be considered for inclusion in SCIE, SSCI, or AHCI, which have rigorous selection criteria and evaluation processes. All ESCI journals will be indexed according to the same standards, including cover-to-cover indexing, cited reference indexing, subject category assignment, and indexing all authors and addresses.

ALTER available on Debian and Ubuntu operating systems!

Our successful sequence alignment converter, ALTER, is available on Debian stretch (which "testing" release right now) and in Ubuntu Xenial (the future Ubuntu 16.04 release) as a package named "alter-sequence-alignment" [Debian package] [Ubuntu package].

We are very proud that our software be worth to be included in these fantastic operating systems!

New AIBench release: AIBench meets Maven and GitHub!

Latest release of AIbench SDK framework (2.5.4) meets Maven and GitHub. With this version, we have changed many things:

Moreover, we have deprecated the nighty builds and the CVS version control.

jARVEST (Java web harvesting library)

jARVEST (Java web harvesting library) is a simple web harvesting or web scraping framework. jARVEST is implemented via a powerful JRuby-based domain specific language (DSL), allowing you to develop harvesters with minimum code
