Interested in becoming a citizen scientist? Join UNSW Sydney student Lachlan Gray for an introduction to bioinformatics – a low cost and high powered 21st century research tool used by researchers and citizen scientists alike.

Bioinformatics brings together the fields of life science, computer science and statistics, and Lachlan Gray will show you how when armed with nothing more than a laptop, internet connection and some basic coding skills, you can become a citizen scientist and conduct your own important research.

Location: Penrith City Library, 601 High Street, Penrith , NSW, 2750


This talk is by a UNSW Sydney researcher presenting for National Science Week.

The 2019 UNSW program of events includes talks, tours and events that will reveal the science that blows your mind – from an unexpected method to measure dark matter to the feminist history of the internet. See the full program.
