The 2021 BioNet Alberta Student Innovation Competition

BioNet exists to not only increase the current Bioinformatics and Computational Biology capacity found in Alberta but also to inspire a new generation of Bioinformaticians and Computer Scientists.  We seek to achieve this goal by not only providing workshop and training activities but also a hands-on annual competition where learned techniques can be applied to real world problems.

Details on the 2020 Student Innovation Competition will be available early in 2021, check back for more information in this space.
