Participant Testimonials

Feb 03 - Feb 08, 2019

The two BIRS workshops I've attended have been exceptionally useful. These are some of the best meetings in science. Feedback I received on the work I presented at the last workshop directly led to improvements in a manuscript I posted to bioRxiv a week later. I've presented this work several times but it's only at the BIRS workshop that I got this level of engagement with my research.

This was the best small-scale statistical genetics meeting that I have ever attended. The atmosphere was extremely conducive to discussion and the scientific presentations were first rate. The set up of the Center from the presentation rooms, to the lounge areas, the food and the amenities all induced interactions between participants and enjoyment of the meeting. I would definitely come back!
