Exhibitors and Recruiters
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.
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.
F1000Research is an Open Research publishing platform for scientists, scholars and clinicians offering rapid publication of articles and other research outputs without editorial bias. All articles benefit from transparent peer review and editorial guidance on making all source data openly available.
The mission of the NIH Office of Data Science Strategy (ODSS) is to catalyze new capabilities in biomedical data science by providing trans-NIH leadership and coordination for modernization of the NIH data resource ecosystem, development of a diverse and talented data science workforce, and building strategic partnerships to develop and disseminate advanced technologies and methods.
Oxford University Press publishes a range of computational biology journals, including Bioinformatics, GigaScience, Nucleic Acids Research, Database, Briefings in Bioinformatics, Briefings in Functional Genomics, and more. Cailin Deery, the publisher for Bioinformatics is exhibiting on behalf of OUP during ISMB this year. Bioinformatics publishes the highest quality scientific papers and review articles with its main focus is on new developments in genome bioinformatics and computational biology. To say hello, ask a question, provide feedback or otherwise, please don’t hesitate to get in touch through the conference scheduling tool.
JAX uniquely amplifies the efforts of the global biomedical research community. We develop and share our research, innovative tools and solutions, ever‑expanding data resources, more than 11,000 specialized mouse models and services, and a suite comprehensive educational programs to empower basic scientific research and speed drug discovery across the globe.
