The Netherlands Society on Biomolecular Modelling (NSBM) cordially invites you to visit its spring meeting, a topical track of the Netherlands Bioinformatics Conference 2014 (NBIC2014) on April 8th 2014.

During several parallel sessions, the floor will be given to PhD students and postdocs who study protein structure and/or structural bioinformatics or related topics (see a list below).

Speakers and attendees will have the opportunity to join the NBIC2014 activities and visit keynote lectures of a.o. Yves van de Peer (VIB UGent, Belgium).


Programme April 8th

Invited speaker: Christian Ottmann, Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands
