Over 200 attendees from all over Australia and the world came together for BioInfoSummer in Adelaide at the end of November 2016 to learn the newest trends and methods in bioinformatics and take this new knowledge and inspiration back to their labs. EMBL Australia was an official supporter of this symposium and the Mäkinen Group from the SA node was involved in its organisation and delivery.

Tanja is a member of the Provis Group at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, at the Australian National University (ANU) where she is in the final stages of her PhD candidacy. Last year, Tanja volunteered to Co-convene EAPS 2016. Her enthusiasm and abundant organisational abilities helped make EAPS 2016 the success it was.
