Life sciences and biology are experiencing a revolution due to High Throughput Sequencing technologies. With these, life scientists can obtain in a single experiment enough sequences to reconstruct the entire Human genome sequence. The analysis of such volume of data requires sophisticated solutions designed in computer science: algorithms and data structures. Since the progress made in the early 2000's, the field of indexing data structures that allows us to mine huge volume of digital data is blooming and witnessing a myriad of applications in Bioinformatics. The question of efficient data structures for managing Big Data in computational biology is crucial to the development of scalable software for High Throughput Sequencing data analysis. This workshop will foster exchanges and collaborations on this topics. Invited speakers active in these aspects will present state of the art techniques and contributed presentations will complement the program.

The Workshop “Data Structures in Bioinformatics” is coorganised by the COST european action SeqAhead and the MASTODONS Defi SePhHaDe. It is hosted by the Computer Science Lab, which is a joint lab between the CNRS and the Université de Montpellier II.
