Toronto Bioinformatics Users Group

TorBUG (Toronto Bioinformatics Users Group) is an association of researchers, other professionals and students in the Greater Toronto Area who have an interest in the field of bioinformatics.

TorBUG meets on the last Wednesday of every month from September through April, except holidays. Research presentations by bioinformatics leaders, students and industry representatives are followed by networking over pizza and refreshments.

Meetings are held in the Red Room at the Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, University of Toronto, 160 College Street at 4:00 pm and are free and open to all.
