UCSD Undergraduate Bioinformatics Club
Established 2012


UBIC represents our undergraduates who are studying in or interested in the diverse field of bioinformatics. Through a combination of events, programs, and projects our mission is to educate and contribute to the education and aspirations of every bioinformatics student at UC San Diego.

Attend our GBM happening on Tuesday Apr 12, 2022 at 6:30-7:30 pm at the Red Room in PC! FREE FOOD at the start! We'll also be hanging around starting at 6 if you wanna come ask questions. You can also join online at 333 453 9145


Bioinformatics Bootcamp

An year-long introductory sequence of lessons to introduce new bioinformaticians to lab-applicable technical skills. For years, it has served as students’ earliest exposure to bioinformatics at UC San Diego.
