EMBL-EBI Open Day - March 2013
Our next open day will take place on Thursday 14 March. This is the perfect opportunity for young scientists who are considering a career in bioinformatics, a PhD or a postdoc to find out more about opportunities at Europe's main centre for bioinformatics. You will learn about cutting-edge research projects, get an overview of one of the world's most important collections of biological databases and tools, and be given time to talk one-to-one with the experts who develop and curate these services.
Links to the talk slides are provided in the table below.
