The PhD student network RSG Netherlands invites you to their second Company Visit on September 16th, at Genetwister in Wageningen.

Genetwister is an innovative biotechnology company, which was founded in 1998. Initially their focus was marker discovery for diagnostics and tool development for genetic modification, but over the years this shifted and expanded towards high throughput marker discovery and practical application and development of both genomic breeding and green biotechnology tools. The accumulating information on biomarker, genetics and gene expression databases required the development of advanced software for data storage, data analysis and visualization. Therefore a bioinformatics group was established in 2004.

For more information you can read the short profile (pdf) of Genetwister. During the visit you will learn more about the work that is done in this company with an emphasize on the role of Bioinformatics.

The RSG likes to close of the visit with drinks in a nearby pub and there will the possibility to join for dinner as well.
