What we're about

▪ Purpose:

This group aims to discuss journals that are related to Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Biostatistics, Machine Learning and various popular topics (Genomics, Single Cell methods, Immuno-Oncology, Drug Discovery & Development, Clinical Trials, etc).

▪ How are papers chosen?

Papers are selected by the presenters who volunteer them, which often will be from their areas of interests. If you have a topic or paper that you'd like to discuss, we'd love for you to join and present!

If you have a paper of interest, please send it to the organizers, Celine ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/celinehan/) and Simon ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/simon-baumgart-30281a8a/) via LinkedIn (We don't check our Meetup inbox).

▪ Meeting Day & Time?

We're aiming biweekly Saturdays (roughly 2 times a month) @ 2:30-3:30PM (EST, Eastern Standard Time). Meeting time might change due to availabilities of organizers or presenters.

▪ What is the format of the meeting?

Format is informal/casual. Usually, 1~2 papers are discussed per session, meaning approximately 30 minutes are allocated for each paper. If more people would like to join with a paper to discuss, we can divide the time appropriately. We're easy going!
