Bioinformatics - the organization and retrieval of biological information with computer assistance - is central to the BeeSpace project. The BeeSpace Bioinformatics group brings together computer scientists and information scientists, to plan and implement strategies for mining the millions of scientific articles that BeeSpace will render accessible.
BeeSpace is involved with a weekly Computer Science seminar series in Bioinformatics, CS591-BIO. A different guest speaker appears each week.
The course website for Fall 2008 is at http://veda.cs.uiuc.edu/courses/fa08/cs591bio/ . This site contains a schedule of upcoming topics and links to seminar talks from previous semesters.
The BioInformatics email list is a low-traffic list for announcements of upcoming meetings and events of community interest.
