INESC-ID welcomes ETH Zürich Olissipo researchers
This past week, April 26-29, the INESC-ID Olissipo team received some of the members of the ETH Zürich team, including Professor Niko Beerenwinkel (in addition to members from the Inria team Professors Marie-France Sagot and Ariel Silber). This Staff Exchange included scientific presentations by both teams – covering computational biology topics from cancer and evolutionary genomics to machine learning and transcriptomics– as well as teamwork sessions and space to reflect on the future directions of this project.
Coordinated by Susana Vinga – INESC-ID researcher and member of its Board of Directors, as well as Associate Professor at Instituto Superior Técnico – OLISSIPO is a Twinning project, funded by the European Commission within Horizon 2020, that aims to enhance the competences in Computational Biology at INESC-ID and to create an international pole of excellence in multi-disciplinary science in Portugal.
