    The ISCB Affiliates program is designed to forge links between ISCB and regional non-profit membership groups, centers, institutes and networks that involve researchers from various institutions and/or organizations within a defined geographic region involved in the advancement of bioinformatics. Such groups have regular meetings either in person or online, and an organizing body in the form of a board of directors or steering committee. If you are interested in affiliating your regional membership group, center, institute or network with ISCB, please review these guidelines (.pdf) and submit your application using the online ISCB Affiliated Group Application form. Your exploratory questions to ISCB about the appropriateness of a potential future affiliation are also welcome by Diane E.

CEO Corner: I'm a Mentor! (Or Maybe it ain't that Easy)
"When Rensselaer asked us faculty to become mentors," he said, "I signed up for it immediately. But you know what? Without getting into details, I believe I failed as a mentor. I wish I knew about your program then. I learned you can't just declare yourself a mentor. It's a serious skill that requires training."

------------------------------------------------

The Value of a Mentor
Looking for a boost in your job search or working life? Find yourself a mentor – or let one find you. A mentor is a person who can guide you, help you, take you under his or her wing, and nurture your career quest.

Diversity of Thought Paves the Path to Innovation
Dr. J. D. Garcia, President-elect of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native American Scientists (SACNAS), writes both personally and profoundly about a new 'imperative for science,' the notion that individuals with a different worldview may be the ones to lead to new ideas. His message sets the stage for the focus on learning in the current issue of SACNAS news.

Confidence Gap for New Profs Most new Ph.D.'s arrive at their first faculty jobs without feeling that they were effectively prepared in graduate school for such key duties as teaching undergraduates and conducting research, according to a new national study of faculty members in their first five years on the job.
