Besides a significant data analysis component, (data) science is also about storytelling. What story emerges from your results? And how do you communicate your insights effectively? In this workshop you learn to use narrative techniques to share your research in a captivating way

People involved: Stephan van Duin (science journalist), organizer: Eva Lekkerkerker (DSC).

Last October, Yu-Hsien Li, a postdoctoral researcher working at SILS, Plant Physiology Department, attended a training workshop focused on structural bioinformatics and organised by the European Molecular Biology Lab (EMBL). Yu-Hsien Li training was funded by the Amsterdam Science Park Study Grant in order to participate to the course in exchange for a small workshop based on what he learned. This workshop will consist of a free lunch followed by two parts on structural protein bioinformatics.
