B-Wise: Bioinformatics@Wageningen Seminar Series

Date: 07 January 2020
Time: 12:30 - 13:30
Location: C0221, Forum Building, Wageningen

In Wageningen, a large number of researchers routinely apply state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools or develop novel algorithms to analyze their data. Through B-Wise, the Bioinformatics@Wageningen Seminar Series, we aim to bring people together on a regular basis to exchange ideas, discuss problems, present our research and learn from each other.

Each first Tuesday of the month we meet over lunch (starting at 12.00), followed by two short scientific presentations on bioinformatics research in various groups. If you would like to participate in the free lunch, please send an e-mail to at the latest two days in advance.
