On the 30th of November 2012 Parco Tecnologico Padano (PTP) Lodi, will host the event “Italian BioR Day“.

Italian BioR Day, promoted by Parco Tecnologico Padano (PTP) and Quantide srl, is linked to the events organized by MilanoR.

It will be an opportunity to share knowledge between R users, towards the creation of an Italian community of ‘open-source minded’ people with a focus on biological data analysis.

The cost of the event is EUR 30,00 per person (VAT included), which includes also lunch and coffee breaks.

Please contact Andrea Pedretti (PTP) if you need further information.
