The meeting place for the next generation of bioinformaticians
The Next Generation Bioinformatics User Group (NextGenBUG) is a user-driven meeting programme that aims to build an engaged user community in Scotland (and beyond) of researchers and others analysing or exploiting large-volume data in biology. It has a major, but nonexclusive, focus on "next generation" sequence data analyses and interpretation.
Working together, we try to figure out the best ways of extracting meaning of the massive amounts of data emerging from ultra-high-throughput technologies such as Illumina, PacBio and Oxford Nanopore.
NextGenBUG meets once every two months in venues across Scotland. The meetings, open to anyone, include invited national and international speakers, talks from local speakers, industry presentations, open discussions, and lots of networking time.
The next meeting will be held in Aberdeen on Friday 12 May 2017.
Presentations from past meetings can be found at NextGenBUG F1000 Research Channel.
