2015 First Annual Midwest Bioinformatics Conference

Share 2015 First Annual Midwest Bioinformatics Conference

Event Details

The Kansas City region has a robust mix of bioinformatics expertise, capabilities, and capacity within research organizations and the private sector. While these assets compare well to established bioinformatics hubs in the country, the region is challenged by the geographic distribution of expertise and infrastructure.

The First Annual Bioinformatics Conference serves to bring together bioinformatics-minded researchers from academia and industry to discover capabilities, share tactical approaches to problem solving, explore synergies, and launch potential collaborations. Additionally, the Conference provides an opportunity for bioinformatics students to learn about employment opportunities within the region and employers to meet prospective candidates. 

Please join us for two days of discovery and practical approaches to collecting, organizing, and preparing data for a broad range of analyses applied in animal and human health.

The conference will include a poster session during lunch on Day 1.  If you are interested in submitting a poster for inclusion, please add "Poster Submission" to your Student/PostDoc or Faculty Registration.  You will receive a separate communication with details for the poster submission process.

Following the conclusion of the conference, local industry professionals may be conducting mock interviews with students.  If you are interested in participating in a mock interview, please add "Mock Interview" to your Student/PostDoc Registration.  If there is sufficient interest in this opportunity you will receive a separate communication with details for your interview.
