Welcome to our monthly bioinformatics meetups!
We’re a community of people doing bioinformatics in Victoria, organized by Melbourne Bioinformatics and convened by Tom Harrop and Steven Morgan.
We hold informal meetups where we share tools, approaches, and problems. Each session starts with a 20-minute talk followed by open discussion. Whether you’re a solo bioinformatician in a wet lab or part of a bioinformatics group or core, there’s always something new to learn from each other.
Please subscribe to the email list to be notified about the 2023 relaunch.
