The VII Student Symposium in Bioinformatics is organized by RSG-Spain,and co-organized by the Instituto Nacional de Bioinformática (INB), the technological platform for bioinformatics of the Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII) and the Centro de Biotecnología y Genómica de Plantas (CBGP). This event is associated with the second edition of the BioinfoCAM (association of bioinformaticians of Madrid) meeting organized by an ensemble of research groups on bioinformatics based in Madrid, taking place on the 16th of October. The event will be hosted at the Centro de Biotecnología y Genómica de Plantas (CBGP) and supported by the Computational Systems Biology and Genomics (CsBGP) were it will take place.
RSG-Spain is an association of junior scientists in Bioinformatics based in Spain and satellite group of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), the largest scholar society in bioinformatics. The VII Bioinformatics Student Symposium is meant to be a meeting point for all students and young postdocs working on the field of Bioinformatics in Spain. .The VII Bioinformatics Student Symposium is meant to be a meeting point for all students and young postdocs working on the field of Bioinformatics in Spain. The Symposium will include research communications presented by participating students, social activities and a special career advice talk by a senior scientist. The event seeks to strengthen the network of students on bioinformatics in Spain as well as foster debate and collaborations among them.
