Event description
A research symposium held in honour of Willie Taylor, celebrating 40 years of his pioneering research in computational biology.

About this Event

This symposium will bring together past and current collaborators and scientists inspired by Willie Taylor’s research. For those wondering about the title, this symposium also marks 30 years since the landmark conference of the same name was held at EMBL in Heidelberg, which in many respects marked the start of the modern bioinformatics era. Willie was one of the organisers of that meeting, and a number of the speakers from that conference will also be speaking in this symposium.

£30 ticket charge is to cover lunch and refreshments.
