CBC Open House Schedule

CBC Open House Schedule – Feb 24th 2017

The Computational Biology Core Open House will be held at the Cell and Genome Sciences building at UCH on February 24th from 9:30am to 4:00pm.
Shuttle transportation is available from Storrs (departing at 8:00am and leaving UCH at 4:00pm in the afternoon to return) for those interested.  Lunch is provided for registered attendees.  Please RSVP here!
This event will provide an update on the new resources available for bioinformatics support including team members, software, workshops, and hardware.  Updates will also be provided for the associated sequencing facilities (CGI and MARS) as well as the new Proteomics Core.  Research talks will focus on members of the UConn community actively using the resources available through the CBC.  Please join us for a fun and informative day!
