SciBite hosted its very first User Group Meeting on Tuesday 19th September 2017, at the Wellcome Genome Conference Centre in Cambridgeshire.

Registrations had to be closed early and attendance reached capacity, with 41 attendees from 25 organisations across the U.S. and Europe.

Full house at our UGM

Our keynote speakers included Samiul Hasan, Director, Analytics Solutions Engineer and Giovanni Dall’Olio Bioinformatician, from GlaxoSmithKline, giving us an insight into Steps to Making TERMite/DOCstore Viral in a Large Organization, and Dr Helen Parkinson, Head of Molecular Archival Resources, EMBL-EBI, speaking on The Ontology Landscape.

The day was interspersed with networking breaks and ended on a Q&A for our SciBite panel, followed by a drinks reception.

We were all extremely excited at SciBite to host our very first UGM, and are enormously proud of its success – but don’t just take our word for it!  Here are a couple of quotes from delegates:

…the best part of the event was the open and honest knowledge sharing.


…the best of the event was twofold: face to face interaction with both peers and other companies and direct face to face access to everyone at SciBite.
