We hope for the Symposium to be a forum for students, post docs, and young researchers in the fields of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. Participants will have the opportunity to attend lectures by several key-note speakers and post-docs, build a network within the computational biology community of the UK and develop important soft skills in a workshop held on the second day of the Symposium.

Prof. Tatiana Tatarinova, University of Southern California, USA
Dr. Alex Bateman, EMBL-EBI, Cambridge, UK
Dr. Natasha De Vere, National Botanic Gardens of Wales, UK
