Rinaldo Catta-Preta, alongside the other members of the organizing committee (photo), hosted this year’s event at Gladys Valley Hall at UC Davis on October 12, 2019. Around 100 students, postdocs and faculty members, working with or interested in computational biology, attended the meeting and watched the cutting-edge work presented as talks and posters. Attendance this year included some southern California UC campi, other states, and Canada, besides northern California universities. The organizing committee was made up from students from UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Merced, UC San Francisco, and Stanford University. Bradley Jenner, intern at Nord Lab, presented a poster.
