Biological Data, Bioinformatics and the Gears that Make Biological Machines Tick.  

Where : Sudoroom reservation for Friday July 26th at 7:30 p.m.  
2141 Broadway, Oakland, CA
Entrance on 22nd Street. We're upstairs!
Elevator and ample indoor space for bikes.

The intersection of biology and computer science is showing tremendous potential.  Literally thousands of data sources great and small are publicly available now.   Come and enjoy a low key introduction to all the 'omes' - genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, methylomes, metabolomes, etc.  We'll play with some of the more useful data sources, tools and biological pathways.  

No biology training is necessary - the talk will be accessible to anyone.   Programming skills are useful, but not necessary.   

Tools:  If you have a laptop, please bring it.  We will try to look at data in the class and preview a couple of tools.  
Cygwin on windows machines, OsX or linux are useful here, but we can go over these at the time if needed.

We will be looking to start a project for anyone who wants to go deeper and get more experience with Bioinformatics.
