Leading Professional Society for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
Connecting, Training, Empowering, Worldwide


Postponed until Fall 2017 | George Mason University -> REGISTER


Registration to the Youth Bioinformatics Symposium is open to any interested middle school and high school student.  A basic knowledge of biology is helpful but not required.

Registration will reopen when a new date in the fall is determined.

A $15 registration fee applies.  All are welcome to participate in the conference, ISCB Membership NOT REQUIRED.

ISCB is intended for individuals who wish to pursue a career in computational biology and bioinformatics.  At this time, ISCB does not have a K-12 student membership category.  You are welcome to become a member of the Society if you wish but membership would be most beneficial to those entering a university degree program related to computational and bioinformatics.  The ISCB Board of Directors is current assessing and considering a membership category and benefits that will directly support K-12 students.

Program Schedule:

The program schedule will be updated to include locations for each event shortly, stay tuned.  A parent or guardian is required to remain with the registered student throughout the day.  To view the entire itinerary please review the information here.
Please review Location & Parking for event and parking locations.  There is about a 8-10 minute walk from Lot K to the Johnson Center.  Please plan accordingly.
A small morning and afternoon snack break as well as lunch will be provided for the students.  There are also several food outlets available, for individual purchases, inside of the Johnson Center.

All workshops will take place in Innovation Hall, just steps from the Johnson Center.  Each attendee will be placed into a group (red, green or blue) at registration in the morning and will rotate through the two workshops and the panel discussion throughout the day according to your color group's schedule. For more information regarding the workshops please review the information here.
We look forward to seeing you this fall!
