About the Group
The Palmerston North Bioinformatics Meeting is a monthly gathering of people interested in bioinformatic and computational science to discuss the practice and profession of these kinds of science. It is an informal forum organised and sponsored by The Elshire Group for sharing ideas and helping each other learn. Sometimes it is like a journal club. Other times it is like a practical lab meeting where one presents a particularly sticky problem to solve. It can even function as a research collective.
It is held on the 4th Friday of every month (some exceptions apply) from 3 to 5 PM. Participants come from AgResearch, Custom Science, Dragonfly Data Science, Environmental Science and Research, Plant and Food Research, Massey University, and Tea Break Bioinformatics.
Anyone with an interest in bioinformatics science and an inclination for clear, honest, and kind communication about the practice and profession of computational research can attend. We welcome new participants interested in bioinformatics regardless of experience level.There are no dues or fees to be part of the meeting. We encourage active participation!
