Initiated in November 2016, the Ottawa Bioinformatics User Group, a.k.a. OttBUG, regroups faculty members, professionals, visitors, and students from the National Capital Region who share common interests in computational biology and bioinformatics.

Monthly meetings take place on the first Monday of each month to discuss work in progress, breakthroughs, and anything in between. Meeting locations and times may vary, leveraging on core members' diversity (University of Ottawa [main & medical campus] and Carleton University).
