The 4th EMBO Meeting Special Symposium
The purpose of this half-day special-interest symposium is to provide delegates of the EMBO meeting, especially early-stage researchers, with the basics needed to access and perform simple, browser-based analyses of the treasure-trove of information in Europe’s most widely used public-domain biological databases. Using a series of examples relevant to the topics covered at the main conference, experts from the EMBL-EBI will demonstrate how the data can be used to generate hypotheses and complement experimental research.
This interactive mini-symposium is aimed at early-stage researchers and others interested in making the most of their biological data. You must be registered for the EMBO Meeting to attend this minisymposium.
