Montreal Bioinformatics Users Group

MonBUG (Montreal Bioinformatics Users Group) is an association of researchers, professionals and students in the greater Montreal area who have an interest in the field of bioinformatics.

Through monthly presentations we present our work, ask questions, share ideas, tips and tricks.

Meetings are held either at the Institut de Recherches Cliniques de Montréal (IRCM), the Institute for Research in Immunology and Cancer (IRIC) or at McGill university, and are free and open to all.

MonBUG is based on the highly successful VanBUG initiative and we also have a sister organization in Toronto, TorBUG.
