The gothenburg bioinformatics network aims to bring bioinformaticians toghether

GOTBIN

The Gothenburg Bioinformatics Network – GOTBIN – is intended to bring together all Gothenburg researchers for whom bioinformatics is a part of their research.

Who is GOTBIN

GOTBIN is a local research-oriented network launched on December 2011. It is organized on a voluntary basis without any funding.

Our primary goals:

  • Maintain a voluntary registry of Gothenburg researchers who practice bioinformatics as a component in their work, and where their primary expertise lies. It should be straightforward to find other local researchers tackling the same research problems as you are. Visit our Google group and slack channel.

  • Promote and forward bioinformatics in Gothenburg. This includes offering services such as a mailing list, discussion forum, and organizing relevant seminars and get-togethers. To ask a question, or find people willing to help you out with any given task, must be easy.

Virtual Seminar Series

Once a month, two invited speakers working in bioinformatics (or a closely related area) will share some of their interesting work and/or experience, with a specific focus on the underlying bioinformatics.

25th August, 11:00-12:00

  • Anders Ståhlberg, Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Sahlgrenska Cancer Center
  • Alexander Eiler, Professor of Aquatic Ecology, University of Oslo

29th September, 11:00-12:00

  • Francesco Gatto, Co-Founder and CSO, Elypta

  • Amir Feizi, Director of Bioinformatics, OMass Therapeutics

27th October, 11:00-12:00

  • Aleksej Zelezniak, Assistant Professor, Chalmers University

  • Babak Alaeimahabadi, Senior Data Scientist, AstraZeneca

24th November, 11:00-12:00

  • Alina Orozco, Bioinformatics Core Facility, GU

  • Lena Hansson, Principal Scientist at Novo Nordisk Oxford

Annual GOTBIN Workshop

10th of December, 9:00-12:00

Annual get-together workshop. The purpose of this year's virtual workshop, is to find out who is working with what and where, and to better get to know each other. This is a great opportunity to meet your next collaboration partner, post-doc or supervisor!
