New Molecular Solutions in Research and Development for Innovative Drugs

Genomics and Bioinformatics Workshop 2015

Genomics and Bioinformatics Workshop 2015


It is our pleasure to announce the fourth workshop organized by the EU FP7 project InnoMol.

The Genomics & Bioinformatics Workshop will take place from November 16-18, 2015 at the Ruđer Bošković Institute, Zagreb, Croatia.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in Genomics & Bioinformatics highlighting new approaches in basic and clinical research including the use of new technology such as Next-Generation Sequencing.

There will be no registration fee for the attendees. The workshop is primarily intended for Postdoctoral Researchers and PhD students. Nevertheless, other participants are welcome. The official language of the Workshop is English.

We can accept up to 60 participants to follow the lectures. However, due to the limited lab space, we can accept a maximum of 12 participants for the hands-on session. Therefore, participants interested in attending the hands-on section are invited to write a motivation letter, describing their current research and the expected impact of the workshop participation for their future research and sent it to Dr Oliver Vugrek ( Participants for hands-on section will be selected by the Workshop Scientific Board.

Registration for the Genomics & Bioinformatics Workshop is open till October 23, 2015.
