The Centre for Plant Biotechnology and Genomics will host on 17 October 2019 the VII Bioinformatics Student Symposium organized by the Spanish Regional Group of Students (RGS-Spain), a student association on bioinformatics embedded into the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).
The event will be a meeting point for young researchers in bioinformatics coming from different Spanish regions and from different fields in bioinformatics. Talks and poster sessions will be organized throughout the day, activities that will enable the attendees to discuss their projects, make connections and potentiate future collaborations among the research groups they work in. Experienced and prestigious researchers will be invited to inspire and orientate the participants in their scientific careers.

The event will be celebrated the day after and in collaboration with the II BioinfoCAM meeting, forum of interaction and development of new ideas among research groups from Madrid which investigate within the areas of bioinformatics and computational biology.
About the CBGP (UPM-INIA)
CBGP was created in July 2006 as a joint UPM-INIA research centre with a double goal: to carry out the most advanced research aimed at understanding plant function, and to contribute to fulfil the needs of the economic agents within the agriculture, forestry and environment productive sectors that are potential users of this research. CBGP also seeks to have an educational role, and strives to become a reference centre for training of both scientists and technicians in the fields of plant biotechnology and genomics, an area not fully developed in Spain at present.
The participation of CBGP(UPM-INIA) in VII Bioinformatics Student Symposium meeting is integrated in the novel “Computational and Systems Biology and Genomics Program” (CsBGP) that has been launched by the CBGP (UPM-INIA) in the frame of its Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence strategic plan.
