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.

Winners of the DREAM Challenge Hackathon!

Congratulations to the winners of the hackathon, Kira McLean, Nadia Tahiri and Vero Rebagliatte!
Kira, Nadia and Vero worked through the night on the Digital Mammography DREAM Challenge, and came up with some impressive results.
For those of you who were not able to attend the hackathon, their full project will be presented once the online competition for this Challenge ends in December.

Thanks to everyone who attended!
Stay tuned for our next hackathon, perhaps next summer.
