Calling Principal Investigators to Host Internships!
The ISCB Student Council (ISCB-SC) is currently soliciting principal investigators (PIs) to host internships through the SC’s Internships Program. The program connects students in developing nations with PIs in developed countries to gain hands-on short-term research experience. These internships benefit the intern as well as the host lab both scientifically but also culturally. The program launched in 2009 and is committed to providing computational biology training for students from developing nations and improving competencies in the field. If you’re interested in hosting an internship or would like to know more about the internships program you can read our recently published article in PLOS Computational Biology , visit internships.iscbsc.org.

FASEB (Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) Member Assessment
ISCB is a member of FASEB. We kindly ask for your assistance in assessing our relationship with FASEB by completing this survey - https://goo.gl/Xy7QyR. The goal of this survey is to better understand how FASEB impacts ISCB members and what more FASEB could do for ISCB.
Register Now for RECOMB2018 Workshop!
The meeting will focus on proteogenomics, single cell systems biology and cancer epidemiology, and how crowdsourced science, data sharing and a culture of collaboration can help advance research in these fields. We will highlight the solutions of the top performing strategies in the Epidemium program in cancer epidemiology and the recent NCI-CPTAC Proteogenomics DREAM Challenge. We will also brainstorm as a community on the possibility of organizing a DREAM challenge on Single Cell Systems Biology, and have a RAMPChallenge Hands on Session.
