Had a "Welcome to Singapore" chili crab and durian dinner last night. Now it's down to business for Bio-IT World Asia #BioIT12

Good of Newt Gingrich to drop into Bio-IT Asia at Singapore's Marina Bay Sands #BioIT12 http://t.co/wmH1yQZK
Jonathan Jacobs @bioinformer
Making the last leg of the trip to #BioIT12 SFAF in Santa Fe. Looking forward to talks from Paul Keim, Battelle's forensics grp and @clcbio

Second day at #BioIT12 began with nice video greeting delegates in several languages, followed by Kevin Davies intro http://t.co/5OOrQh7C
Bio-IT World @bioitworld
Honored to have David Ho (Aaron Diamond Inst) kick off the inaugural BioIT Asia conference in Singapore. #BioIT12
IvanHK100 @ivanhk100
IBM research is involved in helping discovering the cure for AIDS. With the advance of genomics and computing we are getting close #BioIT12
IvanHK100 @ivanhk100
Dr David Ho started with with great presentation about AIDS. It 1st surfaced in LA 1981 among homosexuals groups #BioIT12
Bio-IT World @bioitworld
Ho: Lifetime risk for HIV infection in teenagers: Botswana 50%, S. Africa 33%. #BioIT12
IvanHK100 @ivanhk100
Africa is 1st with 25 million cases of AIDS/HIV followed by India, Thailand 7 million, then America then Europe and Russia #BioIT12
IvanHK100 @ivanhk100
#BioIT12 Africa being very unlucky as the HIV spread keeps rising while in the US it dropped by 6 fold.
Bio-IT World @bioitworld
Ho: nearly 30 drugs (incl entry and integrase inhibitors) now licensed for HIV - more than all other viruses combined. #BioIT12
Bio-IT World @bioitworld
Ho: oldest HIV sample collected in Kinshasa in 1959; estimates suggest big bang HIV dissemination as early as late 1800s. #BioIT12
Bio-IT World @bioitworld
Advances in HiV prevention include per-exposure prophylaxis using anteretroviral drugs, but patient adherence is very tough. #BioIT12

At BioIT-Asia meeting in Singapore. Some difficulty getting online but excellent keynote by David Ho on HIV epidemic & advances #BioIT12

Up now Chris Dagdigian discussing-- in the speediest speech-pattern ever-- Bio-IT Trends from the trenches #BioIT12
IvanHK100 @ivanhk100
Chris Dagdigian from BioTeam is next #bioit12 with presentation titled: Bio-IT Trends from the Trenches
GigaScience @GigaScience
CD: Same problems in 2012 as in '11: Next-gen sequencing causing data handling & storage #bioit12 #bioit12
Bio-IT World @bioitworld
BioTeam's Chris Dagdigian @chris_dag, speaking maybe 2% slower than usual, reviews IT trends at #BioIT12
GigaScience @GigaScience
CD Not so worried about storage this year from tech standpoint, but $$ issues remain. #bioIT12
GigaScience @GigaScience
CD Scientists poor at managing data: no tag, assess true value, understand costs of data vs redoing experiment #bioIT12
GigaScience @GigaScience
CD: highlights useful papers on data management: Ewan Birney http://t.co/5HyCR0Fp , CRAM paper http://t.co/X0wOykiX #bioIT12
Bio-IT World @bioitworld
Dag: in metadata tagging and storage, advice is watch Broad, BGI and Sanger and shamelessly copy 1-2 yrs later. #BioIT12
