BiG Talks! – Assembly of large genomes: methods and case studies


The SciLifeLab Bioinformatics and Genomics seminar series “BiG Talks!” is an initiative started 2018 that aims to give inspiration to the SciLifeLab community and to create new networking possibilities. The BiG Talks will rotate between different SciLifeLab nodes and each event will be live broadcasted.

Everyone is welcome to attend the BiG Talks seminar on 5th of December at 14h00 in Biologihörsalen, Biologihuset, Sölvegatan 35, Lund.

After the seminar (around 15h00) “fika” will be served for those who are registered for the event. During fika there will be a chance to mingle with the speaker and fellow coworkers and give your feedback for the BiG Talk! initiative to make this seminar series as successful as possible.
