ISCB Hosts First YOUTH BIOINFORMATICS SYMPOSIUM


The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) in partnership with George Mason University, George Washington University, and Georgetown University, hosted the inaugural Youth Bioinformatics Symposium (ISCB-YBS), Exploring Computational Biology on June 5, 2016, at George Mason University.

Nearly 100 students from the greater Washington DC area gathered for this complimentary event. The engaging one-day event introduced students to the amazing world of computational biology, allowing them to engage with and learn about three popular tools used in research in our hands-on workshop, inform them of the many career areas that bioinformatics is now appearing in, and spark the spirit of competition in our team-based mini science challenges.

ISCB would like to thank all of the many volunteers who made this happen!
