COMBINE – FAQs

 

Who or what is COMBINE?

COMBINE is a student-run Australian organisation for researchers in computational biology, bioinformatics, and related fields. COMBINE is the official International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) Regional Student Group (RSG) for Australia, and a subcommittee of The Australian Bioinformatics And Computational Biology Society (ABACBS). We aim to bring together students and early-career researchers from the computational and life sciences for networking, collaboration, and professional development.
