The SSA Biostatistics Section aims to be actively involved in both biostatistics and bioinformatics engaging in the promotion and conception of events such as seminars, workshops, and available job opportunities that span across both fields. To reflect this practice, we have recently been endorsed a name change from the SSA Biostatistics Section to the SSA Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Section.
Our first official networking event hosted by the committee was held on the 28th of August in Melbourne during the ISCB/ASC 2018 conference and was attended by about sixty professionals working in the fields of biostatistics and bioinformatics:
