RVC Bioinformatics Day 2014

Bioinformatics is a vital component of any research involving high-throughput data analysis. Its computational, statistical and modelling approaches can be applied to a wide range of research and are used to answer any number of vastly different questions. This workshop looks at how bioinformatics and the tools it generates have been used to investigate host-pathogen interactions. From genome to nucleotide level, the workshop will be looking at the biological insights gained by applying bioinformatics to lab-based research. As such, it is suitable to those from multiple disciplines without previous bioinformatics experience.

Speakers will include:

Mick Watson (The Roslin Institute)
Professor Richard Emes (University of Nottingham)
Dr Damer Blake (Royal Veterinary College)
Professor Michael Sternberg (Imperial College London)

The day will close with the opportunity to network with others in the field sharing the same immunological or computational interests.

Registration to this event is free although admission will be by ticket only.

To register, please go to:

We look forward to seeing you there!
