BCBB is excited to announce the 4th installment in our seminar series. May 24th at 5:30PM, join us in the incredible Microsoft NERD Commons function space for free pizza, a cash bar, all your friends from BCBB, and 2 very exciting speakers.

To get into the NERD space, show a photo ID at the front door and ask for directions to the Commons room.

For this edition of the BCBB seminar series, we're welcoming two incredible speakers, both very well known in the computational biology community.

Peter Park, assistant professor of biomedical informatics at Harvard Medical School (bio (http://compbio.hms.harvard.edu/people/peter-j-park)), will be discussing his research in computational analysis of genomic data to answer important questions in epigenetics and cancer genetics, his talk title is “Mutational analysis of single neurons using whole-genome sequencing".

Chris Dagdigian, co-founder and principle consultant at BioTeam (bio (http://www.bioteam.net/bio/chris-dagdigian/)), will present a seminar covering trends in research IT that even the most IT-challenged computational biologist will benefit from.
