 June meeting

We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting, on June the 3rd, at 16:00, in the main auditorium at IRCM.
Again, we have three very interesting talks. 🙂
You can register at, or just by sending us an email at, if you prefer.

Brian Wilhelm, PhD, principal investigator at IRIC, will be presenting some of the bioinformatics challenges he faces in analyzing high-throughput genomic data, with the objective to better understand the basic mechanisms of transcription and the mutations in leukemia.
Nicole Uwimana will be talking about her project to bioinformatically identify cryptic genes.
Toby Hocking, PhD, “R programmer extraordinaire”, will be presenting a comparative study of the fastest way to find overlapping genomic regions.


16:00 – 16:05 Introduction and open floor to participants for questions, comments or announcements (Alain Bateman or Alexis Blanchet-Cohen)
16:05 – 16:45 Using high-throughput technologies to understand the basic mechanisms of transcriptional regulation, and to study the mutations present in leukemia, Brian Wilhelm, PhD (IRIC)
16:45 – 17:05 Snacks and beverages
17:05 – 17:30 Identifying cryptic genes, Nicole Uwimana (IRCM)
17:30 – 18:00 What is the fastest way to find overlapping genomic regions?,  Toby Hocking, PhD (McGill)
