In the autumn of 2017 we held a two-day workshop and meeting during the last week in October focused on ageing and the application of bioinformatic and genomic technologies to the study of ageing and longevity. Thanks to generous funding from the Wellcome Trust the workshop was free.

There was a one-day scientific meeting (October 26) plus half a day of training sessions (October 27) on applying bioinformatics to ageing, in particular using the Human Ageing Genomic Resources, but other topics like gene expression profiling and machine learning were discussed. The meeting took place in Liverpool, UK. The programme included a number of exciting speakers.
