ISMB2020 - On Demand Content Tutorial
How to access OnDemand content

 
Patience is a virtue
We ask for your patience as we work to process the previous days content and place it into the system for on-demand access. It is no easy task to process more than 300 talks and we are working as quickly as possible to get this done. REMEMBER: you will have access to this platform and all of the scientific content until the end of October. Thank you in advance for your understanding and PATIENCE.

Exploring Montréal from Home

It’s sad that we cannot be gathered together in Montreal to experience the city, our science, and see our friends and colleagues. To help ease the pain, Tourisme Montréal has compiled a list of some of the best online activities, including virtual city tours, music, games and more which feature the city. ISMB will be going back to Montreal in 2024 but until then, enjoy these activities.
