RENCI Offers “Food for the Mind”

Faculty, staff, students and others with an interest in biology are invited to feed their minds—as well as their stomachs—at the Renaissance Computing Institute’s Renaissance Bistro, an information session focusing on the biological sciences.

The First Renaissance Bistro will be held from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 21, at RENCI at North Carolina State University. The event is free and includes lunch.

The Renaissance Bistro is the first in a series of lunchtime events featuring RENCI experts in bioinformatics and software development.  Topics will include discussions about bioinformatics and computational biology resources for North Carolina’s scientific community and RENCI’s North Carolina Bioportal, which is a shared, extensible bioinformatics web portal for use by researchers, educators and students.  Attendees also will learn about cutting-edge bioscience research and computational computing tools that are being developed to support it.

RENCI at North Carolina State University is located on the NCSU Centennial Campus, Partners I Building, Suite 1500.
