We are excited to announce that Pine Biotech, the company behind edu.t-bio.info bioinformatics training portal, is joining forces with BioClues.org to promote bioinformatics. Both teams will collaborate to educate, train and mentor the next generation of bioinformaticians through mentor-mentee challenges, educational support and training across universities across Asia.
BIOCLUES is an acronym for BIOinformatics CLUb for Experimenting Scientists. It is a non-profit virtual organization for, by, and of the Indian Bioinformaticians. Incepted in the year 2005, it is one of the fastest growing bioinformatics societies in India, currently serving over 3400 members from nearly 30 countries.
Pine Biotech and the Bioclues organization see a joint mission to be the catalyst in developing a new generation of computational biologists across India. Together, we will be working hard to bring a uni-faceted value across multi-disciplinarians practicing computational skills to people of all backgrounds and encourage student scientists to take up entrepreneurship as it is the need of the hour for developing bioinformatics in India.
