  • The Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Graduate Student Organization (BCBGSO) hosted their Second Annual BCB Symposium, “Current Topics in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology” on March 25 at Reiman Gardens. 

    About 80 faculty and students attended the day-long symposium which featured several speakers, a poster session and 3-minute speeches highlighting graduate student research projects, and a presentation on professional networking.  At the luncheon, students had time to interact with the speakers. 

  • The Program for Women in Science and Engineering (WiSE) was founded in 1986 by a group of ISU faculty and staff concerned about the underrepresentation and underutilization of women in science and engineering.
