RSG-Sweden is a non-profit organisation, for students and researchers from all backgrounds, with a goal to promote and increase knowledge of computational biology and bioinformatics across Sweden.
Download our flyer (PDF) to help promote RSG-Sweden.
RSG-Sweden was launched in February 2018, and it was first introduced at the Lund University. Our mission is to encourage everyone to get interested in computational biology. By bringing people from life science and computer science areas, we aim to create opportunities for cross-disclipinary collaborations across Sweden.
We aim to organise social and academic events, and for this purpose, we are happy and open to collaborate with: STEM organisations including research and industrial organisations in Sweden, Nordic RSGs and, RSGs across the world.
In addition, with a concept of RSG-Sweden branches, we encourage members to join us and help expand computational biology and bioinformatics communities across Sweden. Find out how to set up a branch!
To become a member, just sign up on Slack! and introduce yourself!
We are looking for people to contribute to the following committees regardless of academic level and background. We appreciate willingness and enthusiasm to learn and grow with our amazing team!
We maintain the website and work with RSG-Sweden branches to keep it up-to-date. Join our team and let's brainstorm ideas! You can also join us on GitHub!
One of the RSG-Sweden's goals is to build and contribute to education and training resources. We aim to achieve our goal by organising workshops and hackathons. For this purpose, we are open to collaborations with high schools and STEM organisations.
We promote events and come up with ideas on how to reach more audience. You should definitely join us if you enjoy putting together science/tech-themed events. We welcome people who are interested in social media management, graphic designing, etc.
We encourage you to join our growing network of computational biology communities across Sweden. Establishing a branch is a great way to connect with a wider community of people from different fields.
Interested in setting-up a branch in your university city? Get in touch via Slack!
We will help you get started with your first local event. For inspiration, check out activities from other branches and ISCB's Regional Student Groups including Nordic RSGs!
Are you based at Umeå University or SLU Umeå? Join our branch to get involved!
Are you based at Uppsala University (UU) or Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet (SLU) in Uppsala? Join our branch to get involved!
News: We are happy to be mentioned on Uppsala University's website!
Register soon for our upcoming event!
