The BCBB seminar series is getting off to a great start April 1. Our inaugural seminar will feature presentations from two prominent Boston-area computational biologists as well as pizza and a bar, all within the Microsoft NERD community event space in Kendall Square. This event has been brought to you with sponsorship from Flynn Life Sciences Group.


5:30 - 6:30: Networking, pizza, and cash bar.

6:30 - 6:40: Opening remarks.

6:45 - 7:15: Validated, scalable, community developed variant calling: Brad Chapman, Bioinformatics Core, Harvard Chan School.

7:15 - 7:45: Clues for the Clueless: Enoch Huang, Head of Computational Sciences, Pfizer R&D.

We’re thrilled to be kicking off the seminar series with such a strong program, and deeply grateful to our presenters. Brad will be presenting on work developing scalable and validated variant calling as part of the bcbio project (https://github.com/chapmanb/bcbio-nextgen), while Enoch will offer career advice and talk about industry trends as viewed from a leadership role in pharma. BCBB will continue to offer regular networking nights interspersed with these seminar-style events. Please come join us and help us shape the future format for this meetup with your feedback!
