Group for bioinformaticians, computational biology folks and anyone interested in the genomics / genetics / NGS / personalised medicine / oncology informatics space in Cambridge (UK). Everyone, whether working in the industry or academia welcome. This group was started by a bunch of industry and academia scientists living in or around the Sawston (i.e. south Cambridge) area and therefore we aim to meet somewhere south of Cambridge typically but by the bus routes.
* Who should join: Bioinformaticians, computational biologists, people interested in Next Gen Sequencing
* Why should members join: Primary purpose is to have fun and secondary purpose to network and understand what overlaps there are between what people are doing in this space and how we could possibly collaborate
* What can members expect out of the group: Fun, drinks, networking
* Community: Nothing can replace meeting other people face to face. Often the strongest relationships are formed over informal discussions in a friendly settings (i.e. a pub). The aim here is to gather together the people in Cambridge working on similar subjects but not necessarily aware of what the others may be doing.
