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

Join our mailing-list for updates or follow us on Twitter.

Contact Richa, Konrad or Thomas if needed.

Next Unseminar

The next unseminar with topic "How to be a good presenter & communicator" will take place on November, 23rd, 2017 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.

Hands-on bioinformatics sessions
