What we're about

The Boston Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (BCBB) Meetup is a networking group for computational biologists in the Boston/Cambridge area. Thanks to the confluence of top universities, hospitals, research institutes, large pharmaceutical companies, and a vibrant biotech startup community, Boston has arguably the strongest CBB community in the nation. However, for practitioners of computational biology in Boston the landscape can appear siloed and unapproachable, perhaps due in part to the lack of a centralized networking group. The Boston CBB Meetup hopes to fill this void and act as a regular venue for computational biologists in the Boston area to meet, network, share information, and learn.

Computational biologists take over Asgard - Feb Edition

Talk Computational Biology at the Asgard! February 26th at 5:30 your friends at BCBB will be catching up over beers and free food in the two back private rooms of the Asgard. Come and join your colleagues for a night of comp bio shop talk and networking (and free food). Bryan Wells from Darkhorse Talent has generously provided us with a wide selection of free pub food for the event. Bryan will be on hand to chat if you’re interested in connecting with Darkhorse as a job seeker, a hiring manager, or just testing the waters and seeing what's out there. All computational biologists and bioinformaticians are welcome regardless of skill level, from lifelong hardcore Bayesian modelers to people who are starting to think about learning just enough programming to make science go faster. See old friends, mentors, students, and make new connections while sharing tales of comp bio triumph and woe over Asgard's wide selection of beers and pub food. * About Darkhorse Talent (http://www.darkhorse-talent.com/): Dark Horse Talent has a direct effect on patients and their families by matching scientific talent with the life sciences companies who need them. We provide our clients and candidates the confidence to know that their needs will be met. Pharma and biotech companies innovate faster when they have the right people leading their mission. As a “roll with the punches” trusted talent advisor, Darkhorse saves companies time and money by providing them with talented, vetted, and resourceful candidates in the areas of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Data Science, and Engineering.

Computational biologists take over Asgard - March Edition

Talk Computational Biology at the Asgard! March 27th at 5:30 your friends at BCBB will be catching up over beers and free food in the two back private rooms of the Asgard. Come and join your colleagues for a night of comp bio shop talk and networking (and free food). Tom Soare from Goldfinch Bio has generously provided us with a wide selection of free pub food for the event. Tom's group at Goldfinch is hiring, and he'll be around if you're interested in hearing about what's exciting in the Goldfinch comp bio / bioinformatics group. All computational biologists and bioinformaticians are welcome regardless of skill level, from lifelong hardcore Bayesian modelers to people who are starting to think about learning just enough programming to make science go faster. See old friends, mentors, students, and make new connections while sharing tales of comp bio triumph and woe over Asgard's wide selection of beers and pub food. * About Goldfinch Bio Goldfinch Bio is a biotechnology company that is singularly focused on discovering and developing precision therapies for patients with kidney disease. Just as the goldfinch has long been a symbol of healing and renewal and was a prominent figure of the Renaissance, Goldfinch Bio is leading a new age of therapeutic discovery to transform the treatment paradigm for people with kidney disease. Goldfinch’s Kidney Genome Atlas represents the most comprehensive patient registry to investigate the underlying mechanisms of kidney disease. Through the combination of genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic data with thousands of anonymized clinical patient profiles, Goldfinch has conducted unprecedented analyses to elucidate pathways and novel targets for kidney disease. Goldfinch is currently hiring a Bioinformatics Scientist and will be further growing its computational biology team in 2019. Watch this space for updates!
