The Bloomsbury Centre for Bioinformatics (BCB) are hosting a “Bioinformatics Showcase Day” on Wednesday 13 April 2016. This event will be aimed at providing life sciences researchers with the opportunity to learn about or discuss open access tools, software or databases publicly available online (or for download) with the researchers who develop these, based at UCL and Birkbeck.

The talks will be taking place from 2pm, and will be followed by a poster, wine and laptop session (where attendees can try out, or ask questions on, tools or databases introduced in the talks session).

Speakers are experts in their respective fields and will include:

Prof. Christine Orengo, Stuctural & Molecular Biology, UCL.
Dr Andrew Martin, Stuctural & Molecular Biology, UCL.
Dr Doug Speed, UCL Genetics Institute, GEE, UCL
Prof. David Jones (Director, BCB), Department of Computer Science, UCL.
Prof. Steve Perkins, Stuctural & Molecular Biology, UCL.
Dr Domenico Cozzetto, Department of Computer Science, UCL.
Dr Lee Whitmore, Department of Crystallography, ISMB, Birkbeck College, Univ. of London.
Dr Lazaros Mavridis, School of Biological & Chemical Sciences, Queen Mary, Univ. of London.

Topics: Protein structure and function; genome analysis; protein modelling; mutation analysis.
