    What we're about

    The mission of the Bay Area Bioinformatics Forum is to help scientists collaborate and grow by providing a network for sharing ideas and technical knowledge about bioinformatics. At our monthly meetings, you will find scientists, professionals, students and DIY'ers sharing information on best practices, the latest software, biological concepts, and new ideas.

    We meet at several locations across the Bay Area with the site rotating each month to San Francisco, Berkeley, Menlo Park, Mountain view, Foster City, etc.

    If you are a bioinformatician, use some bioinformatics in your work or are interested in learning more about it, you can sign up here ( to be informed of future events. Sign up, drop by and join the conversation.
