ESF (European Science Foundation) and JSPS (Japan Society for the Promotion of Science) jointly organized a workshop on "Functional Genomics: From the Bench to Bioinformatics" in Kanagawa, Japan. Scientists and students from Japan and Europe were invited to this workshop. Prof. Satoru Miyano was one of the organizers of this workshop on behalf of the JSPS. During the workshop Vijaya Parthiban, the current Student Council Chair, gave a presentation explaining the benefits of collaborations between the Student Council and other organizations. A possible collaboration with Japanese Society for Bioinformatics (JSBi), one of the largest bioinformatics societies in the world, was discussed. Prof. Miyano was highly interested to coordinate the efforts taken by the Student Council to collaborate with JSBi. Initially, the Student Council will submit a proposal to the JSBi explaining the possibilities of having joint ventures. Similarly, the JSBi will also share their plans and ideas.
