Collaboration with Students in Central America
The Student Council has initiated talks to negotiate the creation of a new regional network in Central America, led by Allan Orozco. Mr Orozco, assistant lecturer at University in Costa Rica, has stressed the abundance of biodiversity resources in the region, starting a campaign involving major governmental funding bodies to enable the development of computational biology in the region through ISCB-SC. Among the projects currently discussed, it is of special interest to of a scientific event in the area of San Jose (Costa Rica), which would bring together local businesses, international corporations and renowned academic leaders. "This year's ISMB being held in Brazil will be an outstanding opportunity to get many students and businesses to boost the computational biology field in Latin America", said Manuel Corpas, who is acting as intermediary between the Student Council and the Central American ISCB-SC Regional Network.
