The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) (www.iscb.org) was the first and continues to be the only society representing computational biology and bioinformatics worldwide. ISCB serves a global community of nearly 3,400 scientists dedicated to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation by:
- convening the world’s experts and future leaders in top conferences
- partnering with publications that promote discovery and expand access to computational biology and bioinformatics
- delivering valuable information about training, education, employment, and relevant news
- providing an influential voice on government and scientific policies that are important to our members
ISCB has three official journals – OUP Bioinformatics, PLOS Computational Biology and F1000Research ISCB Community Journal, and has affiliations in place with several other publications for the benefit of our members.
A pioneer of open access publishing, BMC has an evolving portfolio of some 300 high quality peer-reviewed journals. We are committed to continual innovation in research publishing to better support the needs of our communities, ensuring the integrity of the research we publish and championing the benefits of open research.
ISCB Student Council (SC, www.iscbsc.org) is an international network of young researchers in the broader disciplines of the field of Computational Biology. SC provides opportunities for networking, career enhancement and skills development for the next generation of Computational Biology leaders. The SC Symposium (symposium.iscbsc.org) is organized as a part of the annual ISMB conference with student presentations, keynotes, panel discussions and a poster session. Come visit our friendly SC representatives at the booth for more information.

GOBLET, the Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training, is a legally registered foundation whose mission is to cultivate the global bioinformatics trainer community, set standards and provide high-quality resources to support learning, education and training. GOBLET main objectives are: for the training portal to become both a pull mechanism and repository; to offer training for trainers and end-users; to develop training material and course standards; to provide training resources (surveys, best-practice guidelines, etc.); to raise funds to be able to meet our objectives; to offer a network/community forum; to give further consideration to mechanisms for trainer recognition.
The European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) is a global leader in the storage, analysis and dissemination of large biological datasets. We help scientists realise the potential of ‘big data’ by enhancing their ability to exploit complex information to make discoveries that benefit humankind. We are at the forefront of computational biology research, with work spanning sequence analysis methods, multi-dimensional statistical analysis and data-driven biological discovery, from plant biology to mammalian development and disease. We are part of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory and are based just outside Cambridge, in the United Kingdom.
Informatics technology is essential to the field of cancer research, where the complexity and heterogeneity of the disease translate to unique challenges for data management and analysis. The NCI ITCR program aims to address these challenges by supporting investigator-initiated, research-driven informatics technology development spanning all aspects of cancer research.
