Regional Student Groups (RSGs) were implemented and conceptualized by the Student Council in 2006 with the aim to promote a collaborative research environment, to foster interaction between res working in the field of computational biology. A decade later, the SC consists of 26 RSGs across the world. RSGs are maintained by graduate students and research fellows conducting large scale events, and actively working on building a strong platform for bringing together the scientific community in the field of computational biology in their respective countries. Our RSGs are spread across six different continents around the globe in countries, for example, Brazil, Turkey, Argentina, South Africa, Mexico, Denmark, Netherlands, Australia, Luxembourg, India, and so on.

Websites including links to social media pages can be found in the table below. We encourage you to join your local RSG if you would like to support them as a volunteer or know more about their events. Further information on RSGs can be found here.
