iscb rsg-india webinar – “Transition to Computational Biology” One day webinar series | May 9, 2021


We have always stood for our motto “For The Students, By The Students” and we wanted our events to be even more beneficial for the student community of computational biology. Hence we planned to address the issues that younger students or researchers face and one such issue was their transition from computer sciences or biology to computational biology. The chair for this event was Dr Arjun Ray, Assistant Professor, IIIT Delhi and, we had two speakers: Dr Leelavati Narlikar from NCL, Pune and Dr Sayoni Das from PrecisionLife, Oxford to share their experience from biology and computational background to share their own experience, the problems they faced and how they overcame them. Their talks were inspiring real-life lessons and windows to bridge between both disciplines.
