SOIBIO+10, October 28-30, 2019, MONTEVIDEO, URUGUAY
X International Conference on Bioinformatics – Uruguay 2019
Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SOIBIO and 10th Anniversary of the Master/Postgraduate in Bioinformatics Uruguay (2009 – 2019)
The Iberoamerican Society of Bioinformatics (SOIBIO) is an international scientific society, founded in 2009 to connect several collaborative projects of various research groups from Iberoamerica working in the emerging field of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. SoIBio aims to promote research and development in the field of bioinformatics. Therefore, individuals, national societies or groups going to work in this field will be supported both academically and professionally. It is a platform to foster the interaction and collaboration with other international societies and networks that work in the same field.
The Master in Bioinformatics is a posgraduate carrier established in the University of Uruguay (Universidad de la República) and the Program of the Development of Basic Sciences – Programa de Desarrollo de Ciencias Básicas (PEDECIBA), ten years ago. It is a multidisciplinary and multicentric carrier currently followed by more than 100 students and more than 20 graduated Master in Bioinformatics. The development of this carrier was stimulating synergistic effects between areas such as Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Informatics in Uruguay and in the Region, promoting an emerging bioinformatics identity and the incorporation of students and academics into a set of academics and students working scientifically in a very substantial way. In October 2019, both the SOIBIO and the Master in Bioformatics academic world will celebrate to commemorate our existence. One of the planned activities will consist in offering a set of workshops with the goal to train and/or to introduce students and researches to new – and hopefully – interesting aspects. To achieve this goal, we would like to know the areas you are most interested in.
