Welcome to NextGenBUG

NextGenBUG is back!

The meeting place for the next generation of bioinformaticians

The Next Generation Bioinformatics User Group (NextGenBUG) is a user-driven meeting programme that aims to build an engaged user community in Scotland (and beyond) of researchers and others analysing or exploiting large-volume data in biology. It has a major, but nonexclusive, focus on "next generation" sequence data analyses and interpretation.

Working together, we try to figure out the best ways of extracting meaning of the massive amounts of data emerging fromĀ ultra-high-throughput technologies such asĀ Illumina, PacBio, and Oxford Nanopore.

NextGenBUG meetings

NextGenBUG (traditionally) meets once every few months in venues across Scotland. The meetings, open to anyone, include invited national and international speakers, talks from local speakers, industry presentations, open discussions, and lots of networking time.

The next meeting will be held on October 31st in Edinburgh!

Presentations from past meetings can be found at NextGenBUG F1000 Research Channel.
