CMU Undergraduate Computational Biology Society
The Carnegie Mellon Undergraduate Computational Biology Society (CMU-CBS) is committed to bringing computational biology majors and students interested in computational biology together in a welcoming and active community through academic and social events.
We will host lectures from top computational biology researchers from around the country, plan socials to foster connections between students interested in computational biology and faculty, and support students in attending computational biology conferences (e.g. ISMB). We have a close relationship with Carnegie Mellon’s Computational Biology Department, and serve as a liaison between CB undergrads and CMU’s CB Department.
Fall 2020, Date TBD
Are you an undergraduate who likes to code or has a fascination with biology, but never really understood how the two fit together? If so, join us for our first ever Computational Biology Hackathon! In this 3-day event, you’ll solve an open-ended problem in computational biology/bioinformatics with a team of other undergraduates, and have an opportunity to present your work and win awards! Stay tuned as we release more updates. (If you’re a graduate student, postdoc, or faculty, we would love for you to join us as a hackathon mentor! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how you can get involved.)
Thursday, February 6, 2019
6pm – 7pm | GHC 6501
Look forward to an hour of free food (serving Choolaah) and connecting with other undergraduates passionate about Computational Biology! In addition, we’ll have a keynote graduate CB student speaker who will give a short presentation on their current research and openings in their lab here at Carnegie Mellon’s Computational Biology Department.
