Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SoIBio and 10th Anniversary of the Master 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 interaction and collaboration with other international societies and networks that work in the same field.

X International Conference on Bioinformatics – Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SoIBio and 10th Anniversary of the Master in Bioinformatics Uruguay. Montevideo – 28th – 30th October

The Master degree in Bioinformatics was created ten years ago by the Universidad de la República (Uruguayan public university) and the Programa de Desarrollo de Ciencias Básicas (PEDECIBA – Program for the Development of Basic Sciences). It is a multidisciplinary and multicentric career with more than 100 active students and more than 20 graduates. Its aim is to stimulate synergic research activities between diverse areas such as Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Informatics in Uruguay and in the Region. Besides, the initiative seeks to promote an emerging bioinformatics identity in the country, incorporating students and academics into the field. In October 2019, both the SOIBIO and the Master’s in Bioinformatics will celebrate in a joint meeting to commemorate our existence.
