BCC2020 is online, global, and affordable. The meeting and training are now done, and the CoFest is under way.

The 2020 Bioinformatics Community Conference brings together the Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC) and the Galaxy Community Conference into a single event featuring training, a meeting, and a CollaborationFest. Events run from July 17 through July 25, and is held in both the eastern and western hemispheres.

BoF: Computational Biology in the Cloud

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has moved sequence data to commercial clouds to encourage FAIR data access and help the bioinformatics community streamline existing workflows, build new workflows, and support discovery.

The NCBI would like to better understand the research questions you're trying to answer and your approaches to answering those questions. We welcome you to a discussion of any and all use cases for working in the cloud! Let's share ideas on new tools for accessing and analyzing sequence data.

This BoF is organized by NCBI (National Institutes of Health).

Birds of a Feather (BoFs) are informal, self-organized meetups focused on specific topics. They are a great way to meet other like-minded community members and have an in-depth discussion on a topic of interest.

Please propose BoFs no later than July 10. After that date, new BoF signups will be closed but you are welcome to organize informal "meetups" during BCC2020.
