These informal events will bring together students, researchers and mentors to edit articles on Wikipedia related to Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and related fields.
As with our event last year, the audience is both:
– Students participating in the ISCB Wikipedia competition
– Researchers interested in editing Wikipedia articles in their field
Besides being a great chance to hone your skills in science communication, it is also a great opportunity to interact with other researchers and students.
This is your chance to find get in touch with other bioinformaticians and computational biologists both in your city/institute and across Australia.
Edit-a-thons around Australia are being held on Tuesday 9th September between 4pm and 7pm AEST. Check your local venue below for exact times.
