Description

[To receive priority notice of the next symposium and termly newsletters please sign up to the CCBI mailing list]

Annual Symposium of the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute.

Secure a place at this year’s Annual Symposium of the Cambridge Computational Biology Institute on Wednesday 15 May 2019 at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences.

This one-day event reflects the strength and diversity of research in computational biology, taken broadly, both within Cambridge University and beyond.
