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 Bioinformatics Open Day edition, the 5th anniversary of BioData and the 1st National Meeting of Bioinformatics Students. This event will occur at the University of Minho (Gualtar Campus) from May 5th to 7th.
