Omics Research Symposium 2022: What to expect and How to get involved?

The Omics Research Symposium is a biannual convention of the international bioinformatics and data science community that is growing through the outreach programs Pine Biotech is facilitating together with our partner universities and support ecosystem. One of our main goals is to provide high-quality training to students and faculty in bioinformatics.


The symposium will happen on March 31 & April 01 and include several keynote lectures, panel discussions. Topics will be divided into several categories, including Education, Research, and Industry, and will all focus on the applications of bioinformatics — such as clinical, pharma & biotech, research, and agriculture — and data science in life sciences.
