X International Conference on Bioinformatics: Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SoIBio and 10th Anniversary of the Master in Bioinformatics UdelaR - Montevideo (URUGUAY) - from 28th to 30th October 2019. Followed by two days of Advanced Workshops on Bioinformatics (31st Oct and 1st Nov 2019).
The Master in Bioinformatics is a postgraduate career established by the University of Uruguay (Universidad de la Republica, UdelaR) and the Program of the Development of Basic Sciences (Programa de Desarrollo de Ciencias Basicas, PEDECIBA), ten years ago in 2009. It is a multidisciplinary and multicentric university career in Bioinformatics currently followed by more than 100 graduate students and more than 20 master students. The start and development of this career was a synergistic effort between multiple academic areas (such as Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Informatics) in Uruguay and in the Region, promoting an emerging bioinformatics identity and the incorporation of students and academics working scientifically in a very cooperative multidisciplinary way.
The Iberoamerican Society of Bioinformatics (SoIBio) is an international scientific society, founded in Mexico in 2009 to connect several collaborative projects of various research groups from all 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 organisations and networks that work in the same area.
In October 2019, both the SoIBio and the Master in Bioinformatics UdelaR will become together to celebrate and commemorate our existence in MONTEVIDEO, inviting to participate to many other scientists, professionals, academics and students from all LATIN AMERICA.
