SIB is offering a series of monthly on-site/online seminars on Computational Biology to allow bioinformaticians, life scientists and clinicians to:

  • Learn more about SIB’s research and resources in the fields of bioinformatics, biostatistics, biocuration and computational biology
  • Get together on-site and discuss innovative tools and methodologies in the fields developed by SIB and external experts
  • Benefit from broadcast technology.

Each seminar is broadcast and remotely available to allow scientists to:
