June's SHOW will focus on the growing interrelationship between life science research (and development) and computing related tools and applications. Could we really do science without the help of computers and computing related tools? What will life science research and computing look like in the not so distant future? Who will create these tools? Who will use them and how will they transform science and medicine as we know it today? Our expert panelists will share their insight and expertise discussing the marriage of research and computing.
