Andreas Gisel, Jose Ramon Valverde, Erik Bongcam-Rudloff


The second Latin American regional meeting of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB-Latin America) took place 17-21 March 2012, in Santiago, Chile. More than 250 people attended, primarily from countries in Latin America. The major aim of ISCB-Latin America 2012 was to motivate and inspire young Latin American students and post-docs to conduct the best possible research in the areas of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The first two days of the meeting (17-18 March) were dedicated to hands-on practical tutorials and workshops covering different topics of interest. EMBnet sponsored two tutorial sessions by financing travel and accommodation for two teachers.
