The COMBINE Student Symposium is an opportunity for students and early-career researchers in computational biology, bioinformatics, and the life sciences to share their research with others in these fields. Presentations will be judged and the best ones will receive prizes!
The COMBINE Symposium is not a formal peer-reviewed conference, it’s an opportunity to hone your presentation skills and obtain feedback on your research prior to major upcoming conferences. It is also an excellent opportunity to network with our growing community.
We are proud to announce the speakers for the COMBINE Symposium 2015 Careers Panel:
- Aaron Darling
- Rob Davidson
- Jean Yang
- Bruno Gaeta
- Eleni Giannoulatou
