The next VanBUG seminar is being held this Wednesday, November 10th at the BC Cancer Research Centre. For the event poster and details, please visit their website: http://vanbug.org
This month’s seminar features Ryan Morin from Dr. Marco Marra’s lab as the intro speaker. He will be discussing data mining for “novel cancer driver mutations”.
The featured speaker is Dr. Quaid Morris, from the University of Toronto. He will be discussing strategies for predicting the targets of mRNA-binding proteins, focusing in particular on RNAcompete, a type of microarray assay, and the geneMANIA project, a tool for predicting the relationship between genes.
Unfortunately I will not be able to make it to this seminar, but I would highly recommend interested bioinformaticians to go and enjoy the talk and free pizza. The last seminar, featuring Dr. Steve Hallam, was excellent!
