The Informatics and Genomics Research (TIGR) Meetings
The Informatics and Genomics Research meeting, TIGR, welcomes everyone interested in high-throughput, quantitative and/or data-intensive approaches to biomedical research. We meet every other week in the Del Monte Building, first floor conference room (1-11211) from 9:30 to 10:30 AM. Coffee and bagels provided by the Genomics Research Center (GRC).
