ASHG/IGES/ISCB Joint Symposium: Working with Big Data in the Cloud--Research and Privacy
Launch of All of Us Research Program
Enrollment for the National Institutes of Health’s All of Us Research Program is officially open! The All of Us Research Program is a momentous effort to advance individualized prevention, treatment and care for people of all backgrounds. The program’s goal is to enroll 1 million or more volunteers, and oversample communities that have been underrepresented in research to make the program the largest, most diverse resource of its kind.
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.
ISCB Art in Science: Deadline - June 23!

All interested members (hereafter referred to as "artists") may submit images that have been generated as part of a research project and other creative efforts that involve scientific concepts or employ scientific tools and methods.
