The NIH Library Bioinformatics Support Program is hosting a Bioinformatics Tournament on Thursday, July 30, 2015, 12 – 1 p.m., in the library training room.
Players will learn about multiple sequence alignments and their optimization; introducing gaps in alignments can be costly, and matching similar segments can be beneficial. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is necessary. The number of tasks completed will determine the winner. The winner, and first and second runners-up, will receive certificates and recognition in NIH Library Social Media.
