We’re turning 25!

2024 marks the 25th anniversary of Bioinformatics.ca and the Canadian Bioinformatics Workshops, and we want you to help us celebrate! We’re collecting photos, videos, and stories of the last 25 years of CBW, and we’re even throwing a party at ISMB 2024.

Do you have any great photos from one of our workshops? Did you meet anyone special? We’d love any photos, videos, or memories you’d like to share, and with your permission we may even feature them on our social media and website! You can send us your memories by emailing support@bioinformatics.ca or by uploading them to this Dropbox link.

Birthday Party at ISMB 2024

To celebrate our birthday, we’ll be throwing a party at ISMB 2024 in Montréal, Québec! Saturday, July 13th at 6pm we will be bringing together alumni, faculty, and the bioinformatics community as a whole to reminisce about the last 25 years and look toward the future. Attendance is open to all, regardless of whether you have previously attended a Canadian Bioinformatics Workshop.

Space is limited and attendees must register in advance. You can reserve your spot as part of your ISMB 2024 registration for $20 – register before March 30 using code EARLY10 to receive 10% off and free cancellation. If you want to register for the party but not the conference, you can do so here for $50.
