The ISCB Student Council and its RSGs are supported by various committees in their activities. There are currently five active committees:
- Outreach and Volunteer Committee
- Education and Interships Committee
- Finance Committee
- RSG Committee
- Web Committee
The Outreach and Volunteer Committee of the Student Council is responsible for keeping the members of the ISCB and the Student Council up to date on our work. Beyond that, the Outreach and Volunteer Committee the committee plans and implements all activities related to membership recruitment, and the promotion of the Student Council outside the ISCB.

The Education and Internship Committee's core task is to promote educational initiatives among Student Council and Regional Student Group members by setting up a global student network that brings together students to discuss and learn.
We aim to provide a forum where computational biology and bioinformatics students worldwide will be able to freely voice their opinions on education issues. We plan to address relevant issues by presenting them to educators and education policy makers either directly or through committees of the ISCB.
In addition, the Education and Internship Committee is compiling collections of educational and career resources for students at different stages of their career. Further responsibilities of the committee include the operation of the Student Council internship program, and organization of career-related events at conferences and/or symposiums.

The Finance committee creates and maintains the budget to support the activities of the Student Council, for example, the Student Council Symposium, funding opportunities for Regional Student Groups (RSGs), and general operations. The committee is also responsible for recruiting sponsors, grants, and other funding opportunities.

The Regional Student Group Committee was set up in 2008 by the Student Council to oversee and coordinate the activities of RSGs across the world. The committee serves as a channel for communication between the Student Council and the RSGs.
