Bioinfo-fr.net is a blog, edited by and for French-speaking bioinformaticians. The aim is to present this domain and to “share knowledges”. Hence, several sections can be found. Among them: “Journal Club” (focusing on some scientifics papers), “Formations” which starts to list the main French Bioinfomartics training programs and maybe the most invaluable: the “Astuces” [tips] section where people share their tips, tricks and hacks (file format conversions, sql queries, …)
The general tone is very friendly: no elitism there, everyone shares their knowledge and the style is lively and with a lot of humour. Quite normal for a lair of “biologicus geekuses”!
The website is associated to an IRC channel, which is the “virtual coffee machine” of the French-speaking bioinformaticians: meet them directly online at http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=bioinfo-fr.
