BPG STUDENTS/FACULTY ATTEND 2015 GLBIO CONFERENCE

The 2015 Great Lakes Bioinformatics Conference (GLBIO) was held this year at Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN., May 18-20, 2015. Seven BPG students attended the conference, along with three faculty members. Four students presented posters at the Conference, which had over 250 attendees.  The students felt that the Conference was very worthwhile, especially interacting with students and scientists from around the country, as well as the chance to attend the presentations of the invited speakers.
