Public Access to Results of NSF-funded Research: Starting in January 2016, the NSF will require that scientific publications and the digital data that generated the publication will be publcily deposited. Initially, the DOE's PAGES system will serve as the repository for the pubilcations. The detailed plan can be found here.University of Minnesota's New Research Data Management Policy Highlights
UMII’s graphic element was designed by Augie Park, a graduate student in the College of Design and a graduate research assistant at Design Thinking @College of Design. The network theme of the graphic element communicates UMII’s aspiration of being the link among the many nodes where research data are acquired, analyzed, or stored, such as the University of Minnesota’s high-throughput facilities, the Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, the Office of Information Technology, the Libraries, or UMII Services. Augie applies design thinking to the development of solutions. She gathers research to communicate effectively through visual graphics. Augie's expertise includes branding and identity, UX/UI, typography, HTML/CSS, print layouts, and research. Her strategy utilizes interdisciplinary knowledge of history, design thinking, psychology, and tea. Lots of tea. She creates, develops, and codes. She is a designer.

The Big Data to Knowledge (BD2K) NIH Initiative seeks to enhance the ability of researchers in the biomedical field to extract more information from their data. BD2K continues to announce funding opportunities to achieve this goal: (1) mentored career development award (RFA-HG-14-007); (2) courses for skill development (RFA-HG-14-008); (3) open educational resources (RFA-HG-14-009); (4) Development of Software and Analysis Methods for Biomedical Big Data in Targeted Areas of High Need (RFA-HG-14-020); (5) Early Stage Development of Technologies in Biomedical Computing, Informatics, and Big Data Science (R01) (PA-14-155); (6) Extended Development, Hardening and Dissemination of Technologies in Biomedical Computing, Informatics and Big Data Science (R01) (PA-14-156), (7) predoctoral training in biomedical big data science (T32): RFA-HG-14-004; (8) Revisions to add biomedical big data training to active institutional training grants (T32): RFA-HG-15-009; and (9) revisions to add biomedical big data training to active NLM institutional training grants in biomedical informatics (T15): RFA-HG-15-010.
The 7th Annual BICB Research Symposium was held on January 16, 2015 at the University of Minnesota Rochester. The program included research presentations from Professor Gilad Lerman (School of Mathematics, UMTC), Dr. Nicholas Chia (Mayo Clinic), Professor Robert Stupar (Agronomy and Plant Genetics, UMTC), and Bill Rapp (Chief Technology Officer, IBM).
The 6th Annual BICB Research Symposium was held January 17, 2014 at the University of Minnesota Rochester in Rochester, MN, with 69 attendees from many of BICB's partners, including Mayo Clinic, National Marrow Donor Program, and the Hormel Institute, in addition to participants from other organizations. The January meeting also serves as the annual program meeting. Professor Tim Griffin presented on Large-scale multi-omic data integration and analysis: challenges and opportunities. The program included research presentations by University of Minnesota and BICB affiliated graduate students, updates on the BICB program, discussion of BICB student learning outcomes, as well as a poster session.
