NIH Library NIH Library Bioinformatics Fair

NIH Library Bioinformatics Fair

June 14 & 19, 2012
1-4 pm (both days)
Lipsett Amphitheater, NIH, Clinical Center, Building 10
No registration is required

The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program will host a two-day bioinformatics fair featuring a series of 20 minute presentations followed by Q&A showcasing the licensed resources available from the NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program. The presentations will highlight the practical applications of the resources in research.

Attend the NIH Library Bioinformatics Fair to learn how scientists are using software to analyze, integrate, and annotate data from multiple genomics technologies. Discover the latest applications of these data analysis tools to problems in molecular biology. Find out how state-of-the-art knowledgebases are transforming the functional analysis of high-throughput experiment results.
