Outreach Event of the National Bioinformatics (NBIS) and Genome Sequencing (NGI) infrastructures

Welcome to two days with information lectures, Drop-In service, mingle, and 1:1 meetings! Experts from NBIS and NGI will come to Umeå on March 28-29 to meet and discuss High Throughput Sequencing with scientists in Umeå.

On Thursday, March 28, we will start in the morning with general information lectures. Elísabet Einarsdottir, Björn Nystedt and Mattias Ormestad from NBIS and NGI will inform about their services. All of them will be also available for a Drop-In session after the seminar which has the special focus on helping with VR applications. You can find more information about the Drop-In here:

In the afternoon of March 28, everyone is welcome to participate in the bioinformatics mingle and meet and discuss sequencing projects with the experts from Umeå. The purpose of the afternoon is to increase our interactions university wide, share knowledge and to identify the 3-4 most common sequencing studies conducted in Umeå.

In parallel to the mingle, principle investigators and their project members have the opportunity to discuss their sequencing projects and the SciLifeLab services in 1:1 meetings with the experts from SciLifeLab.

On Friday morning, March 29, we will continue by discussing the selected case studies from the Bioinformatics Mingle with the personal from NGI and NBIS. Depending on the demand, we might organise in parallel additional 1:1 meetings for PIs. The event will finish with a final discussion round.

All programme parts are open for scientists at UmU, SLU and NUS.

The registration for the Bioinformatics Mingle and the 1:1 meetings on Thursday afternoon is closed now. If you are interested in participating, please contact the local organising commitee (follow link below).


Preliminary programme

Thursday 28th:

09:00 – 10:00 NGI and NBIS lectures and question session in Carl Kempe salen (KB.E3.03) at KBC

10:00 – 12:00 Bioinformatics drop-in in the KBC Caféteria

12:00 – 13:00 Lunch break

13:00 – 17:00 NGI 1:1 meetings with Principle Investigators (both at KBC and in the NUS area)

Take the chance for a personal consulting meeting with someone from NGI and discuss your projects with them

13:00 – 17:00   Bioinformaticians mingle in room N370, Naturvetarhuset

Discuss your sequencing projects with experts from Umeå. The 3-4 most common sequencing studies will be chosen and discussed as case studies with the people from SciLifeLab on the next day (Friday, 29th of March, 9:00-11:00)

Friday 29th:

09:00 – 11:00   Meeting between NGI and the Umeå bioinformatics community in Major Groove, NUS

We will discuss the 3-4 case studies that were identified in the Bioinformatics mingle.

The 1:1 meetings might be continued in paralell to this session depending on the received demand.

11:00 – 12:00   Final session in Major Groove to get feedback/suggestions/demand for the NGI/NBIS services
