Computational Genomics Summer Institute (CGSI) Session


Computational Genomics Summer Institute (CGSI) Session

The Computational Genomics Summer Institute brings together mathematical and computational scientists, sequencing technology developers in both industry and academia, and biologists who utilize those technologies for research applications. Due to ongoing concerns related to COVID-19, we have decided to cancel this summer’s CGSI. Despite the current challenges we face, we are grateful that we can still come together virtually! We are so excited to announce that we will be hosting a CGSI session at RECOMB 2020. It is free to attend, but you do have to register for RECOMB for access. All are invited! More information regarding access will be emailed to you after you register for the conference.
