JOBIM 2018 in Marseille

For the second time in its history, the Open Days in Biology, Computer Science and Mathematics (JOBIM) took place in Marseille, at the Pharo’s Palace from the 3rd to the 6th July 2018.

JOBIM is an interdisciplinary event that federates the community of researchers in bioinformatics. Biologists, mathematicians, computer scientists and physicists gathered during these 3 days to meet and discuss about the “Issues and challenges of scientific and technological innovation in bioinformatics”.


The 19th edition of JOBIM, chaired by Benoit Ballester and Christine Brun,  has been organised by the TAGC (U 1090), the French Society of Bioinformatics (SFBI), the GDR BIM and the French Institute of Bioinformatics (IFB) with the support of the Inserm, CNRS and Aix-Marseille Université.

Pierre-Antoine Gourraud, Inserm U1064, CHU de Nantes, France, Université de Californie, San Francisco, USA.

Elizabeth Purdom, Université de Californie, Berkeley, USA.

Emmanuel Levy, Institut Weizmann des Sciences, Rehovot, Israel.

Keynotes, talks and poster sessions brought together around 500 researchers, students and professionals. This edition was also the opportunity for CENTURI to present its interdisciplinary MSc: Computational and Mathematical Biology.


The next edition of JOBIM will take place in Nantes (2 – 5 July 2019).
