Welcome to the Undergraduate Bioinformatics Club of the University of Waterloo, Spring 2017 term. Bioinformatics is a program here at the University that encompasses courses in math, biology, computer science, chemistry and, of course, bioinformatics. It also offers a great co-op program where students have a chance to learn bioinformatics hands-on at many different labs.
As the program is one of the smaller programs at Waterloo, one of our main goals is try to connect students of the bioinformatics program as well as those interested in related area.
For this term, we plan to host learning nights where a few of us will talk about topics including dynamic programming, mass spectrometry, machine learning, and experimental procedures, and current trends in bioinformatics. Of course if you have a topic that you would like to talk about or want us to talk about, feel free to send us an email =)
We’re always looking for new members, so please don’t hesitate and come check our club out!
We welcome students of all faculties.
