Bio-IT is a community initiative, which aims to build, support, and promote computational biology activity at EMBL. Bio-IT community members help each other conduct their research, and share their skills, experience, and tools with others. Click here to find out more about the project.
Please login using your EMBL email address and note that some events may require registration. Click on the individual events to see more details. Events in the calendar are coloured according to three different categories that you can select by clicking the arrow in the top-right corner:
- Research Skills & Discussion - all training and activities relating to research and scientific skills
- Professional Skills - general training and development opportunities for everyone
- Complementary Scientific/Career Skills - non-technical training & career development for scientists
You may also be interested in our list of online learning resources for computational research and bioinformatics, compiled based on recommendations from members of the Bio-IT community. Contact Bio-IT if you would like to add an event to this calendar.
