=How to dial from UK or elsewhere

The number will be a US landline that you will need to call (which I will give you). If you are in the UK you can call this by dialing this this low-call UK number first: 0844 431 4000 which costs 3p/min. Or follow instructions for calling the mobile number in my last mail and I will reimburse you in January. If you are outside of the USA or UK, please find a cheap way to call into the US from whereever you are and I will reimburse you.


How to take part in BioSysBio Teleconference?

We usually organize our teleconference using the free conference services (eg: conferenceuk.com). It’s quite easy to take part in the conference.
