Both Jim and Suzanne attended VIZBI 2014 EMBO conference on Visualizing Biological Data in Heidelberg. Jim, with Seán O’Donoghue (below), organised the event. It is always a friendly and interesting meeting and this year was no exception. Jim gave a lightening poster presentation on Jalview (photo exactly 35 seconds in). Suzanne ran a workshop and chaired one of the informal break-out sessions about training.
