NGSchool Society

NGSchool (Next Generation School) is a platform to share expertise in the field of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data analysis and general Bioinformatics.

We organize activities for young researchers who are primarily from Central & Eastern Europe, who have a background in biology/mathematics/informatics, and who strive to improve their bioinformatics and data analysis skills.

Summer school is our flagship annual event - so far we have organised four editions. We also co-organized a number of local events, such as workshops, symposiums, and conferences. This year, when faced with the challange of the pandemic we organised a successful series of online training - NGSeminars and are preparing a 2-day virtual conference - NGSymposium in September. We hope to return to in-person events next year, but after gaining experience in conducting vritual sessions we will increase our presence online.

I’m a computational biologists (i.e. data scientist for genomic data). My research interests include ML for computational biology, epigenomics, tumor evolution and heterogeneity. I like plotting readable figures to illustrate the point I’m making.
