Last week, Kaitao and Alexie went to the NSW Bioinformatics Research Symposium (#sbrs16) co-organised by our nascent society ABACBS (pronounced like an abacus), Joshua Ho, Aaron Darling and others.
Held at the impressive Charles Perkins institute of USyd, we had an awesome turnout of more than 150 people with excellent diversity in terms of gender and age. Topics for presentations and posters were broad, applied and pure bioinformatics, genomics, mathematics and there was also exceptional diversity in terms of disciplines: bioinformatics is a diverse uber-discipline!

p.s. Alexie was invited to give a talk, which you can find below.
