Visiting the UK in September 2014

I am coming to the UK for 4 weeks in September!

Earlier in 2014 I decided to go to the Genome Informatics conference as I had never managed to get to it before. But I soon discovered a bunch of relevant meetings and workshops at the same time, and it was too hard to resist extending the trip.

I look forward to catching up with all my tweeps and fellow bioinformaticians!


Date Place Activity
1-3 Sep Oxford UK Genome Science 2014 (speaking)
4-9 Sep Birmingham Visiting School of Biosciences (couldn't cope with ECCB too)
10 Sep Birmingham Balti Bioinformatics "on air"
11-12 Sep York Global Microbial Identifier 2014

This megatrip wouldn't have been possible without the financial and other support of many people: the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative; the Microbial Diagnostic Unit Public Health Laboratory; the ngMicrobes Project; Ross Coppel, Andrew Lonie, Helen Gardiner, Ben Howden, Kim Barton, David Sims, Gemma Shephard, Laura Hubbard, Allie Hardwick, Cathy Wardius, Denise Carvalho-Silva, Ian Henderson, and Nick Loman.
