About us

Following what is happening around the world, in Portugal, Bioinformatics has experienced an outstanding growth over the past few years. This is reflected academically through the development of prestigious post-graduations and in the economical/business sector with the establishment of new startup companies with international connections.
Bioinformatics Open Days is a student-led initiative, first held at University do Minho, Braga, in 2012. It aims to promote the exchange of knowledge between students, teachers and researchers from the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology fields.
This year we will be celebrating the 10th Edition of Bioinformatics Open Days and the 5th Anniversary of ELIXIR Portugal. This event will be ONLINE, with the stream being held in the University of Minho, from May 5th to 8th.
