Autumn is coming

Autumn is coming

It seems that autumn fully arrived here in Finland. Yesterday we had a relatively strong storm hitting the southern part, so slowly the cosy atmosphere of cold outside, warm inside comes back. But the nicest part about it is that the evenings are also getting darker so that we can switch on garden illuminations again.

Music suggestion of the month

Heilung: Great music, great show! It’s rare these days to listen to a new band without having the thought, ‘Okay, I have listened to something similar before…’ Hopefully they’ll be one day again in Finland…

So strange weather

So strange weather

This is really a strange time, no snow in winter and then during spring we have snow in the night/morning and 10+ degrees in the afternoon. So strange… However, lets hope for a better summer!

Workshop: “Foundation for the Future Agenda”

Workshop: “Foundation for the Future Agenda”

I just noticed I haven’t written anything yet about my attendance at the Shared Workshop: “Foundation for the Future Agenda” in Hinxton, UK, during February. This was a workshop organized by EBI for the three H2020 projects GeneSwitch, BovReg and AquaFAANG.

As always, it was an excellent meeting in Hinxton, with lots of good interaction and talks. Also, a visit to the Red Lion is always a nice experience.

FAANG-Europe workshop in Prague

I just came back from a very interesting FAANG workshop in Prague, three days of talks about the functional annotation of animal genomes. Thanks a lot to the organizers!

More information about the even can be found here.

After the event we still had some time to discover the city.
