HILARY term 2023
Exciting new programme coming soon!
WHG Data Forum & coffee morning
The connect@WHG Data Forum is back! The forum is a short & informal slice of science that is held just before the WHG Coffee Morning on Tuesday mornings, and aims to promote centre cohesion and cross-group interactions. As the name suggests, the emphasis will be on 'dealing with data' but we will also have talks on technologies, platforms and latest developments with contributions from the Oxford Genomics Centre and elsewhere.
We aim to make the Data Forum inclusive, entertaining and informative with a variety of talks and formats. It is open to everyone at WHG and is not all about bioinformatics.... we'd love to get a variety of speakers and attending audience to prompt discussion on biological and computational perspectives.
Please join us for any/all of the sessions and we look forward to seeing you there!
If you are interested in presenting or chairing a session or have an idea to discuss, please contact Gavin Band (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Helen Lockstone (email@example.com)
All sessions at 10:00-10:30 in Room A / Room B - in person!
The planned schedule for this term is detailed below - sessions will be confirmed the week before and announced via email and at the top of this page.
These talks were held in Trinity 2022. The theme for this season was long reads.
