Dear all,

We are pleased to announce a joint course from SIB and the Doctoral 
Program StarOmics entitled:

*"**Information Retrieval and Text Mining for Biology**"*

This three-day course, which will be held in Geneva from *3-5 June 
2015*, aims to provide participants with a state of the art information 
retrieval (identify relevant documents in a collection) and text mining 
(identify and extract relevant information in a document) applied to 
biology. Successes and evolution since the 2000s as well as current 
challenges and recent trends will be discussed as well.

- understand the methods and the pipeline supporting most text mining 
- evaluate different text analytic tasks such with the appropriate metrics
- use some text mining services to support biocuration
