The 3rd ISCB UK Regional Student Group's bioinformatics symposium.

A forum for students, postdocs, and early career researchers working in the intersection between computing and biology to meet and discuss their latest research, works in progress, and problems facing bioinformatics, set in some of Wales' finest countryside. Symbiosys17 was free to attend for PhD students and postdocs.

We encouraged the submission of abstracts for posters and oral talks covering any topic in bioinformatics or computational biology.

The conference included keynotes, student talks, lightning talks and a poster session. Attendees joined us the night before for a hackathon, and stayed with us the night after to sample some local beers and take in the sights of Aberystwyth on Saturday morning.
