    The environmental impact of computational biology

    How can we judge the environmental impact of (scientific) computing and especially computational biology?

    The climate crisis is becoming steadily more urgent. As a result, research community members are becoming steadily more concerned among about the environmental impact of (scientific) computing, and especially computational biology.

    But what can we really do about it?

    Join this EMBL-EBI webinar with invited speaker Loïc Lannelongue (University of Cambridge) on Nov. 23 (15:30-16:30 GMT) to find out!

    More information

    Participants will talk about what is known so far, how to estimate the impact of our work, and how to measure the carbon footprint of common bioinformatic analyses. We will also highlight means scientists and institutions have at their disposal to make their research more sustainable.

    You are invited to join this lively debate on the ethical implications of these environmental costs and examine what is still needed to move forward.
