June 5, 2016 | 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.  The 2016 program is now concluded.  We hope to offer another in 2017.


Program Schedule:

The program schedule has been updated to include locations for each event.  Parents and friends are invited to attend the science fair as well as the closing ceremonies but the remainder of the day's events are for the students only.  To view the entire itinerary please review the information here.
Parking/Drop-off or Pick-up:
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 three workshops 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 all on Sunday, June 5, 2016!  Please start your morning off by stopping by the registration desk, between 8am-9am, outside of Dewberry Hall inside the Johnson Center to pick up your badge and be placed into your color group.
