Background: I am designing a conference for biologists and beginner bioinformaticians to make them understand (simplify) the usage of various bioinformatics tools. However, as I researched more, I found out there are various different types of tools for different forms (genomics, proteomics, drug design, transcriptomics etc.), different applications (drug development, clinical diagnostics etc.) and even further divisions like (gene comparison, gene editing etc.)
My questions: 1) What is the optimal way to divide these tools into types (tracks of conference) so that they are most relevant to the attending biologists and bioinformaticians?
2) To make this event more focused, what is the most important area, you think I should cover (using your experience of working with biologists)?
