The Israeli Society for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ISBCB) is a nonprofit and educational organization.

Our main goals are:

  • To promote research and teaching in Israel the fields of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
  • To link between academic and government agencies and research institutes in Israel where research in the field is conducted.
  • To link between the Israeli society and other related societies world-wide.

ISBCB Activities
  • Organizing annual scientific meetings, where current research in all fields of bioinformatics and Computational Biology is presented by investigators from local institutions and by distinguished speakers from overseas. We always invite and encourage young faculty that recently joined the research institutes in Israel to present their work in a lecture in the annual meeting. Furthermore, many individual research projects are presented in a poster session. Prizes are awarded to the best posters.
  • Sustaining scientific relationships with other national and international bioinformatics and other biological societies. We are affiliated with ISCB and ILANIT.
  • Updating ISBCB members through e-mail messages and regular mail, about local and international meetings and courses.
