09 Apr Keynote speakers UBC symposium 2019
Theme of this year’s UBC symposium is ‘Bioinformatics 4 Life’ and we are proud to announce two great keynote speakers.
Thijs Ettema from Uppsala University (Sweden): Dr. Ettema’s lab is focused on characterizing microbial diversity using state-of-the-art technologies such as single-cell sequencing and metagenomics. By assessing microbial diversity, he is also attempting to gain additional insights in evolutionary differences between the main domains of life.
Sara Pulit from Vertex Pharmaceuticals, San Diego: Sara has been working in Utrecht, with a strong emphasis on genetic association studies to unravel genetic predispositions for different diseases. She has recently moved to Vertex Pharmaceuticals where she continues to apply genetics and bioinformatics in an industrial setting.
This year will feature our sixth edition of the yearly Utrecht Bioinformatics Center Symposium. Save the date to join a full day of interesting keynotes, local PI’s and selected talks from PhD candidates and postdocs as well as a poster session during lunch.
When: 7 October 2019
