SME Bioinformatics Forum
EMBL-EBI’s freely available biological data and services make it easier for small companies to stay focused on innovation. This year, with the support of One Nucleus, we have the great pleasure of conducting our SME Forum in our new South Building on the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus. This event features networking opportunities and presentations about how your company can make the most of public molecular data and services.
The Forum will introduce bioinformatics tools and data resources and will present the opportunities for SMEs, other industry organisations and other interested individuals to use and integrate these resources in order to derive business benefit from the existing and developing infrastructure.The topics of the workshop have been specifically selected to be of greatest interest to industry organisations in the biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
