What is the ISCB?

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) is dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. ISCB communicates the significance of our science to the larger scientific community, governments, and the public at large. It serves a global membership by impacting government and scientific policies, providing high quality publications and meetings, and through distribution of valuable information about training, education, employment and relevant news from related fields. ISCB membership offers many benefits including reduced conference registration fees to several high impact events and reduced subscription prices for a selection of journals of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics.

What is the ISCB-SC?

The ISCB Student Council (SC) is a section of ISCB dedicated to facilitating opportunities of development for students and young researchers in the field of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics. ISCB-SC was the vision of Manuel Corpas and was officially approved by ISCB Board of Directors (BoD) during ISMB 2004.

The declared mission of the ISCB Student Council is to promote the development of the next generation of Computational Biologists through provision of scientific events, networking opportunities, soft skill training, educational resources and career advice. To best suit local needs, the Student Council has taken up the initiative of establishing Regional Student Groups (RSGs). We see these regional groups of students as local windows to global opportunities. All RSGs function in close collaborations with the Student Council catering needs-based solution to their members.

What is an RSG?

Regional Student Groups (RSGs) are groups established and managed by the SC. RSGs primarily aim to provide a supra-institutional organization, capable of initiating events that would bring together students and young researchers within a country or region.
Creation and maintenance of a global network of Computational Biology students is a vital and challenging task that requires an organization in place.
