Dr. Vicky Schneider, from the Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) in Norwich, UK, will present a talk titled “Bioinformatics for life scientists in the high throughput era: making the most of the parts”.
Abstract: From her own journey as a biologist to the world of bioinformatics and open science, Vicky will share her experience and passion for bridging the gap between different disciplines and communities. Vicky will talk about her current Institute research themes, The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) in Norwich, UK.
