ISCB Student Council: Next Generation Computational Biologists

Welcome to the ISCB Student Council, the student organization of the International Society for Computational Biology.

Our mission is to promote the development of the next generation of computational biologists. We achieve our goal through provision of scientific events, networking opportunities, soft-skills training, educational resources and career advice, while attempting to influence policy processes affecting science and education. The Student Council website is a resource for the global computational biology student community and we allow you to get in touch with your peers and to find out about events and initiatives for computational biology students - no matter where in the world you are. If you have questions or comments don't hesitate to contact us.

Check us out on YouTube!

As a global network of students, the ISCB Student Council would like to reaffirm its support for all scientists especially computational biologists, of all stages, around the globe. We echo the views of our parent organization in current global uncertain times.

The Student Council has worked hard for more than a decade reinforcing diversity in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology. Our organisation has always had, and will continue to promote, a culture of inclusiveness, equality, and open science. We strongly believe that international collaborations and contributions are what makes science successful and moves it forward.

We, at the Student Council, put scientific progress above all for the advancement of the community. As a promoter of scientific harmony, we extend our solidarity to all students and researchers who are being affected by the recent unhelpful and discriminatory directives in the USA and elsewhere in the world.

Sincerely,
ISCB Student Council

In July 2014 the ISCB Student Council celebrated its 10th anniversary. Over its ten years of operation, the Student Council has grown to over 2000 members thanks, in a large part, to its constituent of innovative and enthusiastic volunteers. These volunteers have worked hard to uphold the Student Council’s mission i.e. promoting the development of the next generation of computational biologists. While many of the volunteers have not received any direct recognition for their contributions, each and every one of the Student Council members will attest that the reward lies in the skills and experience gained in being part of organizing an event or activity.

However, to ensure that both the efforts of these student volunteers don't go unnoticed, and that their collective experiences could be shared with others, the Student Council put together a series of article documenting various aspects of the Student Council initiatives that PLOS Computational Biology is publishing in conjunction with ISCB. Many of the articles are now published and have been launched as a PLOS Collection.

Read more about the 'Stories from the road' article series and how it was put together on the PLOS blogs!

Thanks to all of our speakers, especially our keynote speaker Dr. Sagun Fatumo, and everyone who attended the symposium this year for making it a great event!
