FASEB Bioart Competition
BioArt: Scientific Image & Video Competition

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) is pleased to announce its third annual BioArt competition. Each day, scientific investigators product thousands of images and videos as part of their research, but very few are ever seen outside the laboratory. We are looking for visually compelling, high resolution submissions from federally-funded researchers and/or FASEB constituent society members. Images & videos can be submitted through August 30! For more information, please visit: www.faseb.org/bioart.
2014 Wikipedia Competition
ISCB Congratulates 2014 Wikipedia Competition Winners

At During the ISMB conference in July, we announced the winners of this year's Wikipedia Competition. ISCB conducted an international competition to improve the coverage of the Wikipedia on any aspect of computational Biology. A key component of the ISCB's mission is to further the scientific understanding of living systems through computation and to communicate this knowledge to the public at large.
Soft Skills
Soft Skills: An important Asset Acquired from Organizing Regional Student Group Activities

Contributing to a student organization, such as the International Society for Computational Biology Student Council (ISCB-SC) and its Regional Student Group (RSG) program, takes time and energy. Both are scarce commodities, especially when you are trying to find your place in the world of computational biology as a graduate student. It comes as no surprise that organizing ISCB-SC-related activities sometimes interferes with day-to-day research and shakes up your priority list. However, we unanimously agree that the rewards, both in the short as well as the long term, make the time spent on these extracurricular activities more than worth it. in this article, we will explain what makes this so worthwhile: soft skills.
