Programming for Evolutionary Biology conference

I thought I’d update you on a conference I’m presenting at in September.  It’s Programming for Evolutionary Biology 2018, taking place in Buttermere in the beautiful Lake District from September 2-6th 2018.

It’s organised by our colleagues (and BBSRC STARS partners) at the University of Huddersfield, Jarek Bryk (@jarekbryk), Maria Luisa Martin Cerezo and Marina Soares da Silva.

PEB’s aim is to bring together scientists broadly interested in applying bioinformatic tools to answer evolutionary and ecological questions.

Unlike other conferences featuring mostly talks and poster sessions, it aims to serve as a platform for discussing common programming pitfalls encountered during research and features workshops to further develop participants’ bioinformatic skills.

It’s a fantastic programme, please check it out.  The organisers are still able to accept applications, so if you are interested then get in touch.

My session is on Cloud Computing.  We’ll be looking at how to use Cloud services for genomics analyses, including setting up our own server in the Cloud, how to store and manage our data and an introduction to the Cloud Genomics services: Microsoft Genomics and Google Genomics.
