ISCB SC RSG Turkey has become a paramount student initiative, organizing events that contribute to the developing computational biology and bioinformatics society in Turkey.
We organize student symposiums attracting undergraduate and graduate students since 2012. We have been organizing our symposiums as satellite meetings to HiBiT (International Symposium on Health Informatics and Bioinformatics), which is the biggest bioinformatics meeting in Turkey. Being less formal and student-oriented organization, our student symposiums has been successful in encouraging early career researchers to meet and exchange their expertise in the area. Indeed, thanks to the previous symposiums, the active core members of the RSG Turkey has been growing regularly. So far, we had the symposiums in Cappadocia, Ankara, Mugla, Cyprus and Antalya with the participation of students from different parts of Turkey. This year, we are again planning to organize a student symposium as a satellite meeting to HiBiT 2019 to reach young researchers in Turkey.We expect this year’s symposium will be as attractive as last year satellite meeting for researchers.
We also thank ISCB SC, HIBIT 2019 Committee and İzmir Biomedicine and Genome Center for their kind support.
