Organizer: Fran Lewitter

This in-person session was held during the annual ISMB meeting in Toronto Canada. There was great interest in this topic with many individuals, departments and universities beginning core services. Please find presentations below.


We have met annually since 2002 and have participated in conference calls since ISMB/ECCB 2007. Today's meeting will address best practices for running a bioinformatics core facility and will include short talks from people from different types of facilities - universities (public and private), research institutes, and industry. Ample time will be allotted for discussion.
