Penn Bioinformatics Forum

The Penn Bioinformatics Forum has a long history of bringing top speakers in bioinformatics from academia and industry. All GCB students are invited for a lunch meeting with the PBF speakers. GCB students and students also organize two PBF seminars per year (i.e. they select speakers, send the invitations, organize the schedule and meet with speakers on an individual basis, while Penn faculty meet the speaker for lunch and dinner as a group).
