Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SoIBio and 10th Anniversary of the Master in Bioinformatics

Uruguay (2009 - 2019)


The Iberoamerican Society of Bioinformatics (SoIBio) is an international scientific society, founded in 2009 to connect several collaborative projects of various research groups from Iberoamerica working in the emerging field of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. SoIBio aims to promote research and development in the field of bioinformatics. Therefore, individuals, national societies or groups going to work in this field will be supported both academically and professionally. It is a platform to foster interaction and collaboration with other international societies and networks that work in the same field.

X International Conference on Bioinformatics - Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SoIBio and 10th Anniversary of the Master in Bioinformatics Uruguay. Montevideo - 28th - 30th October

The Master in Bioinformatics is a postgraduate career established in the University of Uruguay (Universidad de la República) and the Program of the Development of Basic Sciences - Programa de Desarrollo de Ciencias Básicas (PEDECIBA), ten years ago. It is a multidisciplinary and multicentric career currently followed by more than 100 students and more than 20 graduated Master in Bioinformatics. The development of this career was stimulating synergistic effects between areas such as Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Informatics in Uruguay and in the Region, promoting an emerging bioinformatics identity and the incorporation of students and academics into a set of academics and students working scientifically in a very substantial way. In October 2019, both the SOIBIO and the Master in Bioinformatics academic world will celebrate to commemorate our existence.
