and scientific exchange
Discussions on topics including: genomics, proteomics, systems biology and integrative biology are regularly organized at IBIS. For more information: http://journalclub.ibis.ulaval.ca/
According to their interests, IBIS members are encouraged to participate in either the journal club on Evolutionary Genomics and Systems Biology, or the journal club on Integrative Biology.
Club Bioinfo IBIS
The Club Bioinfo IBIS’s mission is to promote sharing of bioinformatics knowledge among different research teams at IBIS as well as with external groups. The club regularly organizes public presentations, training workshops, and discussion meetings run by and for IBIS and external members, including students, postdoctoral fellows, researchers, and research professionals. The topics covered concern both fundamental (e.g. programming, algorithmic) and applied bioinformatics (e.g. genomics, proteomics, biostatistics).
Interlabs occur weekly during Fall and Winter semesters and provide IBIS members opportunities to present the results of their research projects to the whole IBIS community. Open to all members, they are an excellent way to discover other projects that are taking place at IBIS and to exchange ideas with other members!
Nationally and internationally recognized researchers are regularly invited as guest speakers to present their research. Attendance is open to everyone and these seminars are great opportunities to discover interesting research and develop future collaborations
IBIS Student Day
This day is an exceptional opportunity for students and postdoctoral fellow to present their work in the field of integrative biology. All are invited to present their work! For more information:
As a member, student or postdoctoral fellow, get involved in the life of the Institute and contribute directly to its development.
Created by and for the Institute’s students and postdoctoral fellows, the student committee is involved in the organization of seminars and the Institute’s Student Day. The Chairperson of the student committee also sits on the Institute Committee and represents the interests of students. The student committee is a great place to share your ideas and suggestions about the Institute.
IBIS Student Day
The Student Day provides an exceptional opportunity for students and post-doctoral fellows to present their research in integrative biology fields to all the members of the Institute. Everyone, including professors and research professionals are invited to participate in this day. For more information: http://journee.ibis.ulaval.ca/
Seminars – Conferences
Many of our members are involved in the organization of seminars, conferences, round tables, and discussions. IBIS members have also formed various clubs focussed on specific topics of shared interest, for example the Laval University Genome Editing club (https://twitter.com/GenomeEditingUL).
Don’t be shy to participate in the organization of these clubs, seminars, and conferences!
The IBIS social committee organizes regular events throughout the year: the Christmas party, New Year’s, “Cabane à sucre” Sugar time, Fête Nationale “St. Jean Baptiste Day” BBQ, and the Halloween party! Everyone is invited to attend these events. Some of the best scientific ideas were generated at social gatherings and your participation facilitates and enriches these exchanges between IBIS members. You can also get involved in the organization of these events by participating in the Social Committee’s meetings!
The objective of the Sustainable Development Committee is to improve the work environment at IBIS in socially responsible ways. You are invited to provide your suggestions / comments to the committee or to participate directly by joining the committee. Your ideas are welcome! For more information :
