Otto Warburg Summer School and Research Symposium on Cancer Genomics

Otto Warburg Summer School and Research Symposium on Cancer Genomics

*** Postponed to August 16th - 21st, 2021 ***

This summer school is held in Berlin every two years and brings together researchers and PhD students from different backgrounds (including molecular biology, bioinformatics, genetics, mathematics) to discuss recent advances in a current topic in biology and computation.

The Otto Warburg Summer School and Research Symposium (OWS) will not take place in 2020 due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. The new dates are August 16th - 21st, 2021.

The OWS is an interactive event that starts with a series of lectures which bring students from different backgrounds up to the same level of knowledge. Later on, the program focuses on research talks that showcase the current research questions our speakers are trying to answer.

The key to this summer school is interaction between speakers and student participants so everyone is highly encouraged to submit a talk or poster and get valuable input from experienced speakers.

Practical sessions also play an important role.

This OWS is co-organized by the IMPRS-BAC and the CompCancer Research Training Group. PhD students from all over the world are welcome.

Scientific organisers: Peter Arndt, Stefan Haas, Martin Vingron (Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics) and Nils Blüthgen (Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin)
