This year’s forum will be extremely interactive and the success of the Education Panel will be dependent upon participation of our Rocky participants. Please plan to attend this forum! The mission of the Rocky Education Panel Forum is to create a regional bioinformatics community that includes educational resources and contacts for bioinformaticians at all levels from student to research assistant to department head.

Different from past Education Panels, this years forum will include two separate sessions on consecutive days, Friday December 1 and Saturday December 2, both from 4-5 pm. Tentative agenda is attached.

Volunteer student participants are needed for the following
3) Session I: Students resumes & cover letters! These will be critiqued on stage. This is a great chance to get your resume and cover letter reviewed specifically by leading Bioinformaticians in the field. DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY.
