Introducing Nordic Computational Biology

We are pleased to introduce Nordic Computational Biology (Nordic CompBio), a platform to promote current research within the fields of computational biology, computer science, and related areas happening across the Nordics. You can read more about us and our activities at our current homepage: www.nordic-compbio.iscbsc.org

Nordic CompBio is founded with the aim of bringing anyone interested in computational fields together, irrespective of their academic backgrounds and stages. Our aim for the near future is to organise more events such as recurrent seminars, symposiums, and conferences. We also plan to organise theme-based events e.g. focused towards machine learning, sequencing technologies, genome analysis, etc.

With this announcement, we cordially invite you to be part of our growing community, get involved and contribute in one or several of our activities. There are different ways to be part of Nordic CompBio, and these include:

- Join our team as a member and/or advisor, you can sign up at: https://nordic-compbio.iscbsc.org/support/get-involved/

- Flagship Events: We are planning to organise small theme-based conferences. For example, we are planning for an event focused towards Covid-19 sequencing and data analysis, across Nordics. We encourage you to join us as an organiser and/or speaker. Sign-up at the above-mentioned link, or send us an email.

- Nordic CompBio Talks: We have been organising interesting talks, read more about our initiative here: https://nordic-compbio.iscbsc.org/nordic-compbio-talks/

- Share with us your suggestions on how to further develop Nordic CompBio: https://nordic-compbio.iscbsc.org/support/provide-feedback/

We thank you for your consideration and we look forward to having you as an active member.
