BISC Focus Groups

The mission of the Bioinformatics and Information Science Center at WKU is to build and maintain an interdisciplinary community, with student engagement, that will collaboratively address problems in informatics and information science.

To increase the frequency of BISC member interactions as a "community" in some common focus areas, we have created special focus groups. We have compiled these into the following groups:  (please click on a group for more information)
