Bioinformatics Meetup


Seminar — Are you a nerdy bioinformatician, interested to talk about how things work under the hood in programming and how we could bend them to reach our research goals? We are going to dive deep into details of the programming languages, which we are using in bioinformatics (Python, R, Julia, C, and so on). We invite you to share experience on ways to solve problems that we as bioinformaticians wrestle with daily.


Date & Time:

Mærsk tower (Blegdamsvej 3B), auditorium 13.1.37.
Please note, that in the evening access to the building is unfortunately only possible through the main entrance with the ID. Because of that, sign up until the end of 18th November (Sunday) by registration link.

Hosted by:




17:30 – Doors open and seating

17:45 – Talk “Build reproducible & fast pipeline in python using ‘everything is an object’ paradigm” by Dmitrii Borisevich (PhD at SUND, KU).
The talk will focus on technical aspects and “syntactic sugar” of python, which allowed Dmitrii to implement simple universal caching system, saved between separate runs of a data analysis pipeline. To get the most benefit out of the talk you need to have computer science (CS) or bioinformatics background and know the basic CS concepts. Specific knowledge of python is not required, as all the language-specific concepts will be clarified during the talk.

18:15 – Lightning talks from the audience – bring your own ideas!
Tell us in 2.5 minutes or fewer about something tricky you have just learnt, or some generic package you have just found, etc. The rule of thumb: present something, that made you feel “I wish someone told me about that, before I’ve spent 3 days!” last week.

18:20 – Facilitated networking
