From 17 Apr 2015 until 01 May 2015 - CIBIO-InBIO, Vairão, Portugal

A Programming for Evolutionary Biology Conference/Meeting will be held from April 27 – May 1, 2015 at CIBIO-InBIO (Vairão, Portugal) and will bring together 27 scientists broadly interested in applying bioinformatics tools to answer evolutionary questions. 

This conference is a "spin-off" of the "Programming for Evolutionary Biology course" and will serve as a platform for discussing common programming pitfalls encountered during research, and feature workshops to further develop participants' bioinformatic abilities.


The organizers of this event are:
Karl Heilbron, University of Oxford, UK
Michiel Holtof, University of Leuven, Belgium
Rui Faria, CIBIO-IInBIO/University of Porto
