This year’s programme was highly diverse, featuring keynote lectures, parallel thematic sessions, an evening poster session, three ELIXIR-NL tracks and an entertaining evening programme. The participants discussed the latest developments in bioinformatics, systems and computational biology, and their wide-ranging applications in life sciences & health, agriculture, food & nutrition. The added value of interdisciplinary collaboration clearly emerged from several presentations.
