RSG News and Information

In 2006, the Student Council conceptualized 'Regional Student Groups (RSGs)' with the aim to promote interaction among students pursuing research in the field of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Over the past few years, SC has successfully established 26 RSGs globally and the number is on a steady rise. Presently, the RSGs comprise of more than 1500 members across the world. RSGs conduct regional events and meetings to promote the professional development of students. RSGs also aim to serve as a bridge between the local industry and academia by providing career opportunities for the students.
