The BIG Research day is an annual tradition of the Bioinformatics Graduate Program, Interdisciplinary Oncology Program, and Genome Science + Technology Graduate Program from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Over 100 graduate students from all three programs gather to present their exciting research projects and attend seminars and workshops by academic and industry professionals. We also invite undergraduates with an interest in genomics to join us and learn about cutting edge research in this area.
Every year, the BIG Research Day has a main theme to highlight overarching ideas in genomics research. The main theme this year will be evolution.
The 9th annual BIG Research Day is happening on March 14th, 2019 at UBC, Vancouver.
