Premio "Datos Abiertos de la Comunidad de Castilla y León" al proyecto Escovid19data

El pasado 19 de noviembre la Junta de Castilla y León concedió los premios Datos Abiertos de la Comunidad de Castilla y León. En la categoría Productos y Servicios el primer premio fue para el proyecto Escovid19data. Recopilación colaborativa de datos de COVID-19 por provincias en España, que cuenta con la colaboración de nuestro investigador Daniel González Peña.

El proyecto Escovid19data recoge datos de COVID-19 por provincias en España, información que es recogida y procesada colaborativamente a través de distintas fuentes.

En la comunidad gallega, nuestro investigador Daniel González Peña es quien contribuye a dicho proyecto, manteniendo también este repositorio en GitHub con los datos del COVID-19 para la Comunidad Autónoma de Galicia, cuyas fuentes son la Consellería de Sanidade (Xunta de Galicia), la Xerencia da Área Sanitaria de Ourense, Verín e O Barco de Valdeorras (SERGAS) y el Instituto de Salud Carlos III.

Con los datos de este repositorio, publica diariamente el #SemaforoCOVIDGalicia en su cuenta de Twitter y en un canal dedicado de Telegram. La versión más actualizada se encuentra siempre en esta página web.

Somos ciencia, somos CINBIO

El Centro de Investigaciones Biomédicas de la Universidade de Vigo, al que el grupo SING pertenece desde su creación en el año 2016, acaba de presentar un nuevo vídeo para dar a conocer el trabajo que se lleva a cabo actualmente en el centro.

En este vídeo, titulado "Somos ciencia, somos CINBIO", se busca acercar a toda la comunidad al día a día del centro, mostrando cómo las investigaciones realizadas en las cuatro áreas principales se traducen en innovación, transferencia y compromiso con la sociedad.

Participation at the PACBB 2020 conference

The 14th International Conference on Practical Applications of Computational Biology & Bioinformatics (PACBB 2020) took place in L'Aquila (Italy) from 7th to 9nd October, although all the sessions were celebrated online due to the global pandemic.

The SING group participated with the following four contributions, all presented in the Bioinformatics and Biomedical applications session:

The first contribution, presented by R. Pérez-López; G. Blanco; F. Fdez-Riverola; A. Lourenço and entitled The activity of Bioinformatics developers and users in Stack Overflow, won the best paper award of this year's edition. Congratulations to our researchers!

We also took this opportunity to present Compi Hub, our public repository for sharing and discovering Compi pipelines, where the GenomeFastScreen pipeline, developed and presented in collaboration with Jorge Vieira an Cristina Vieira from the Phenotypic Evolution Group at i3S (Porto), is deposited.

Also, our head researcher José R. Méndez-Reboredo is Guest Editor of this issue, aiming to publish original research and review articles that explore state-of-the-art methods and tools used to take advantage of textural information.

Submission deadline is 6 November 2020 and potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Methods for detecting inappropriate content.
  • Knowledge extraction techniques for textual sources.
  • Document retrieval systems and methodologies.
  • Big Data registration, processing and analyses.
  • Big Data techniques and methodologies, data-driven information systems, and knowledge acquisition.
  • Semantic and knowledge-based systems.
  • Multi-classifier/Decision Systems.
  • Natural Processing techniques for improving textual management.
  • Using ontologies knowledge to enhance textual problems resolution and ontology learning from text.
