ISCB Hosts the Second Youth Bioinformatics Symposium

The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) in partnership with George Mason University, will host the Youth Bioinformatics Symposium (YBS), Exploring Computational Biology at George Mason University in winter 2019.

At our first YBS, in 2016, nearly 100 students from the greater Washington DC area gathered for this event. This engaging one-day event introduces students to the amazing world of computational biology, allowing them to engage with and learn about three popular tools used in research in our hands-on workshop, inform them of the many career areas that bioinformatics is now appearing in, and spark the spirit of competition in our team-based mini science challenges.

We hope you join us to make YBS 2019 just as successful!
