We, the current members, are excited to announce the relaunch of the Bioinformatics Special Interest Group (SIG) within the ASM, and we invite you to become a part of this dynamic community.

About the Bioinformatics SIG

The Bioinformatics SIG is committed to advancing microbial genomics, transcriptomics and meta-omics through the development and application of computational approaches. Our primary goals are to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange microbial researchers, clinicians and allied health professionals with a shared interest in bioinformatics, computational biology and related fields. Through these activities, we aim to promote innovative research and discoveries that affect and advance scientific knowledge through to translational outcomes.

Why join?

Networking – connect with like-minded professionals in the field.

Knowledge sharing – stay updated on the latest bioinformatics advancements and best practices and contribute to the development of new bioinformatics software and workflows.

Collaboration – explore opportunities for research and project collaboration.

Professional development – enhance your skills and expertise.

Influence – contribute to the growth and impact of bioinformatics in the ASM community.

How to get involved

If you have a passion for bioinformatics or simply want to learn more about it, we encourage you to express your interest in joining our Bioinformatics SIG. Whether you are an ASM member or considering becoming one, your enthusiasm and ideas are welcome.
