About this event

The BHKi/AT hybrid meetup; Bioinformatics meets Tech, is the first of a series of meetups to bring together bioinformatics and software engineering communities. We believe that these two communities can benefit from each other given that they are both guided by the goal of creating practical solutions. This first meeting will be a back-to-basics approach introducing both audiences to BHKi Africa’s talking, and the vision of this merger, which includes making biologists confident programmers and introducing research software engineering to developers to develop more biological research-based tools.

One vision of BHKi is to create a platform for early career researchers to network and present their work, as well as listen to experts in the field. We have achieved this in the past year through monthly virtual meetups dubbed “Science cafes” where we invited guests to speak on different-omics topics, mental health in research, and presentations of projects by our members.
