Würzburg Unseminars in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology


Würzburg Unseminars in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology are participant-driven meetings that give members of the bioinformatical community a possibility to connect with each other in an informal and casual way. WUBSyB, heavily inspired by Heidelberg Unseminars in Bioinformatics, make use of interactive formats like BarCamps, World Café and Hackathon/Codefest to bring them together (more details in Budd et al., PLOS Comp Bio, 2015). Most importantly unseminars should be fun, entertaining and informative for the participants.

We meet every second Thurdays of a month at 17:00 in the Center for Computational and Theoretical Biology unless announced otherwise.

Contact Richa, Konrad or Thomas if needed.

Next Unseminar

The next unseminar will take place at December 08th, 2016, at 17:00 in the seminar room of the Center for Computational and Theoretical Biology, Am Hubland. Please feel free to join. If you have questions contact us. To see and vote for upcoming topics click: here
