Do you have awesome bioinformatics research you are dying to share with the world, but don’t have the funds to attend a conference? 

Been there, done that.

This is why Lifebit is now offering travel grants, of up to £500, to PhD & postdoc level bioinformaticians to attend a conference of their choice to present their work.

Yes, you did read that correctly… Lifebit is offering to pay for you to jet set around the world!
