Introduction UBC newsletter November 2020

This newsletter finds you when we are near the end of the 50 years bioinformatics celebratory year and the academic year 2020-2021 well underway. 2020 has been a very disruptive year for all of us, and with the recently increasing number of rising covid-19 cases, the coming months will remain challenging. We do hope that you, your family, and friends are safe despite the current circumstances. 

Despite these challenging times, we do look back on a very successful start of our Bioinformatics and Biocomplexity Master’s programme. In addition, we have organized a completely online BioSB2020 and an increasing number of participants for our monthly UBC webinar series. 

Looking forward, we are encouraging further community interactions despite many of us working and studying at home. Reason to expect to see many of you during our webinars, community events, and courses. We are looking forward to meeting and inspiring you online.

On behalf of the executive committee,
Patrick Kemmeren
