Public Affairs and Policies Committee

The Public Affairs and Policies Committee will interact with worldwide government agencies that fund bioinformatics research. The Committee, in partnership with other Societies where and when appropriate, will provide guidance to the government on policies related to bioinformatics and genomics, and will assist government agencies in defining bioinformatics funding programs. The Committee will also alert the ISCB Directorship and membership of government policy likely to impact our science, and to respond appropriately to feedback given.
