The Student Council (SC) is a vibrant international student group made of members from around the world who share a passion for bioinformatics and computational biology. The SC is organized into teams and committees, each with their own tasks and responsibilities, designed to provide students with support and resources. The SC is part of the ISCB and as such we work closely with the ISCB leadership to achieve our goals.

Student Council Executive Team
The positions in the Student Council Executive Team (ET) are filled by the elected leaders. The key role of the ET is the sustainable development of the Student Council and its Regional Student Groups (RSGs) and the coordination of all activities. For this purpose several committees are established that are chaired and occupied by SC members. The SCET is responsible for managing these committees. The colored lines in the organizational chart represent which ET member has the final responsibility of each of the committees.
The events teams currently mainly focus on ISMB and ECCB related efforts, such as the Student Council Symposium, but we hope to take up the challenge and increase the SC presence during other events (such as ISCB/ASBCB Africa conference).
The standing committees focus on sustaining the SC and its RSGs. These include the Education, Fundraising, Outreach, Web and RSG committees.
