BoF/Mini Track


This session is tailored to anyone with a general interest in Julia for Biologists. Join us to meet like minded people, exchange thoughts and develop ideas on Julia and its application in the biological sciences.

The session has 3 parts:

  1. Who is in the room? ~ 15 min
  2. Presentation “A perspective: Julia for Biologists” by E. Roesch ~ 25 min
  3. Discussion ~ 50 min

A recorded version of 2. will be made available afterwards but the session itself will NOT be recorded.


“Birds of a Feather flock together” — Whether you see yourself as a biologist, software developer, mathematician or anything in between, the objective of this session is to provide a welcoming and discussion-stimulating environment to strengthen the Julia community in the biological sciences. Independent of your Julia skills level, we are curious to hear what brings you to this area, what you love about it and where you feel like is room for improvement.
