Proceedings of the Eleventh Annual UT-ORNL-KBRIN Bioinformatics Summit 2012 MEETING ABSTRACT Open Access Proceedings of the Eleventh Annual UT-ORNL- KBRIN Bioinformatics Summit 2012 Eric C Rouchka1*, Robert M Flight2, Hunter NB Moseley3 From 11th Annual UT-ORNL-KBRIN Bioinformatics Summit 2012 Louisville, KY, USA. 30 March - 1 April 2012 The University of Tennessee (UT), the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and the Kentucky Biomedi- cal Research Infrastructure Network (KBRIN), have colla- borated over the past eleven years to share research and educational expertise in bioinformatics. One result of this collaboration is the joint sponsorship of an annual regio- nal summit to bring together researchers, educators and students who are interested in bioinformatics from a variety of research and educational institutions. This summit provides unique opportunities for collaboration and forging links between members of the various insti- tutions. This year, the Eleventh Annual UT-ORNL- KBRIN Bioinformatics Summit was held at the Seelbach Hilton Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky from March 30- April 1, 2012. A total of 232 participants pre-registered for the summit, with 126 from various Kentucky institu- tions and 80 from various Tennessee institutions. A number of additional participants came from universities and research institutions from other states and countries, e.g. University of Arkansas Medical Sciences, Michigan State University, University of Cincinnati, Iowa State University, etc. Eighty-four registrants were faculty, with an additional 68 students, 37 staff, and 32 postdoctoral participants (with 12 undeclared). The conference program consisted of three days of presentations. The first day included a pre-summit of talks by Kentucky researchers and a workshop on Next- Generation Sequencing technologies. The next two days were dedicated to scientific presentations divided into four plenary sessions on Next-Generation Sequencing, Medical Informatics, Metagenomics, and Beha
