RSG-Pakistan is a member of The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) Student Council (SC) Regional Student Groups (RSG). We are a non-profit community composed of early career researchers interested in computational biology!
What we do?
We organize webinars regarding computational biology and bioinformatics. We have started a webinar series for students to have awareness of computational biology and bioinformatics considering latest research. We will also organize career building webinars for personal development of the students. Additionally, students will also have the opportunity to present their research work on the platform of RSG-Pakistan and help them connect them with international society of computational biology (ISCB).
