SIB PhD Training Network Retreat
24-26 June 2019, Fribourg
The annual retreats are exclusively reserved to the Training Network (TN) members and combine, in a relaxed atmosphere, interactive sessions in which the students can both present their work as well as network with their peers and with a speaker/tutor, usually a Group Leader from a Swiss University. Furthermore, we organize a social/fun activity.
This year we are very happy to invite Dr Frédéric Schütz, co-group leader of SIB Bioinformatics Core Facility, Lausanne.
This year, the event will be a soft skill exercise in order to improve data visualization in presentations and the students' presentations should have the following format:
List:1. Mariia Bilous - A network-based approach for visualization and simplification of single-cell RNA sequencing data (5:50 / 4:20)2. Nastassia Gobet - A systems genetics approach to uncover recovery of sleep loss (5:48 / 5:04)3.
