RSG-Sweden

Computational Biology · Bioinformatics · Community

RSG-Sweden is a non-profit organisation, for students and researchers in life and computer sciences, with a goal to promote and increase knowledge of computational biology and bioinformatics across Sweden.

Our parent organisations are the International Society of Computational Biology (ISCB) and the ISCB Student Council.

About Us

Swedish branch of the ISCB's Regional Student Groups


After months of hardwork and planning, RSG-Sweden was launched in February 2018. It was first introduced at the Lund University. Our mission is to encourage more students to get interested in computational biology. By bringing students and researchers from life and computer science backgrounds, we aim to create opportunities for cross-disclipinary collaborations across Sweden.

Our collaborators


We aim to organise social and academic networking events through collaboration with research organisations (from both academia and industry) and other RSGs across Europe.

In addition, with our concept of RSG-Sweden's branches, we encourage members to join us on our mission to increase visibility of computational biology and bioinformatics communities in universities across Sweden. Find out how to set up a branch!

Join Sweden’s community of computational biologists!

To become a member, just sign-up on Slack (use your university e-mail address). Don't hesitate to introduce yourself!

You are welcome to contribute to any/all of the committees regardless of your academic level and background. We don't ask for experience but willingness and enthusiasm to learn and grow with our amazing team! The more the merrier!

Web Committee

We are a team of developers; we maintain the website and collaborate with the outreach committte for content development. Interested in graphic designing and web development? Join our team and let's brainstorm ideas!

Education Committee

One of the RSG-Sweden's goals is to foster a collaborative community where people can share education and training resources, and experiences. We aim to achieve our goal by organising workshops, hackathons, lectures. Let us know your ideas and/or if you know of any organisations that we can collaborate with!

Outreach Committee

We help organise events (and plan a fika menu!) and come up with ideas on how to get promotion done! You should definitely join us if you are interested in putting together science/tech-themed events.

Finance Committee

We plan and maintain the budget required for RSG-Sweden's events. Interested in giving a helping hand in the area of accounting and finding sponsors? Join our important committee!

Become an affiliated branch of RSG-Sweden!

With our aim to develop computational biology and bioinformatics communities across Sweden, we encourage you to join our growing network! Establishing a branch at your university gives you opportunities to connect with a wider community of students and researchers from different STEM backgrounds. We are currently working on four branches: Lund, Uppsala, Stockholm, and Göteborg.

It's easy to get started:

  • Assemble a team of friends/classmates. We encourage you to involve students from different academic backgrounds (not just bioinformatics and computational biology) to keep a team inclusive and diverse.

  • Make sure your branch team has: i) president/chair(s), ii) a team of students responsible for finance and outreach (event planning), and iii) optional: advisor(s) - only PIs and postdocs are eligible.

Interested in setting-up a branch at your university? Get in touch with us via Slack!

What's next?

Organise local academic event (e.g. seminar) or a social meetup. For ideas and guide, have a chat with us and our branch teams on Slack! We also recommend you to check out websites of other ISCB's Regional Student Groups!

Committee in Lund

Our branch is associated with the Lunds naturvetarkår (LUNA). Join us and get involved as much as you like. No experience is required but willingness and enthusiasm to help grow our branch!
