About this Class
The NIH is home to a number of groups aimed at supporting bioinformatics, genomics, computational biology and various related topics. Many of these groups meet regularly to host talks or provide training opportunities, while others have active online communities where people can ask questions and get help.
The goals of the Bioinformatics Community Fair is to introduce members of the NIH community to these groups: their goals and scope, training opportunities and talks planned for the future, how one can connect with them, etc.
In addition to the group presentations, there will also be several panel discussions on recent topics of interest in the bioinformatics community including data organization, management and sharing, and cloud resources for bioinformatics, as well as a discussion about the current bioinformatics ecosystem at NIH overall, and what could be done to improve it.
Interested individuals of all backgrounds and skill-levels are welcome to attend.
