This half-day meeting will have six short talks by graduate and postdoctoral researchers working in a range of biological subject areas. They will illustrate how they use computing to address problems in their chosen field. There will be questions and answers after each talk and time for discussion over coffee (or after the meeting, though lunch is not provided). All interested students, postdocs and other staff from any University departments and affiliated institutes are welcome to attend.
