This year’s pathogen bioinformatics meeting will be held as a workshop of the APPS 2019 conference in Melbourne. Please note that the workshop is held at the AgriBio building, La Trobe University. For those of you staying near the MCEC where the main conference is being held, there will be a bus departing from MCEC at 8:30am going to AgriBio. If you would like to catch this bus please contact James.Hane@curtin.edu.au or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is the program for the 2019 Pathogen Bioinformatics Meeting:
