Wednesday, February 11th
7:00 to 9:30 p.m.
(door prizes at 7:25)
A Brief Introduction to Bioinformatics for Sysadmins
Bill Van Etten, Ph.D.
Bill will talk about bioinformatics, some of the common BIFX
applications, a bit about the science behind them, and a little on
how/why bioinformaticists use these applications. Bill will also present
a brief introduction to BioTeam's IBT, an informatics benchmarking tool.
Bill really knows his stuff, and is very good at explaining it to people
who don't have a background in molecular biology. I encourage everyone
to come hear this talk; after all, greater Boston has one of the highest
concentrations of genomics/biotech companies in the world, so landing a
job at such a place could easily be in your future.
As is starting to become a tradition, we'll have door prizes again this
month. Bring a business card to throw in the "hat."
