Time flies… it’s been over a month since Dr Benita Vincent commenced as the Australian Bioinformatics Network’s Executive Officer. Like me, Benita works 50:50 with the ABN and her role in CSIRO’s Transformational Biology initiative. (Actually, there’s so much to do it feels more like 100:100.)
Benita has a background in biology — immunology, to be specific (and fish immunology to be very specific). She has hit the ground running by organising the upcoming Introduction to Jalview Workshop and setting up the registration and payments portal behind that and future events that the ABN will help support.
I’m delighted Benita is part of the ABN and we both look forward to working with other ABN members to help Australian Bioinformatics deliver even more benefit.
