Feedback from previous Winter School attendees:

“Great networking opportunities.”

“Fantastic speakers.”

“Very well organised.”

“I got heaps out of the week. Very worthwhile for my research.”

“The speakers are fantastic, a logical sequence of ideas were presented through. I am really excited for my future in bioinformatics.”

“It takes special talent to pull off a conference people actually enjoy attending and it was thanks to some of the more charismatic orators, that I was able to enjoy the Winter School so much.”

“I would strongly encourage all biologists even without any mathematical background to attend the Winter School of Mathematical and Computational Biology.”

“Gave me the confidence I need to talk to other people and bioinformaticians about the analysis of my NGS data. Thanks.”

“The discussion panels were very useful and a more relaxed format to discuss the topics.”

“Being a medical diagnostics background and relatively new to the area of NGS, I found the clinically focused talks the most useful particularly the currently used applications and their limitations.”
