UBIC is an academic student organization at UCSD dedicated to supporting bioinformatics students and students interested in bioinformatics by facilitating access to jobs, internships, and research opportunities; events, programs, and seminars; communication, collaboration, and socialization between bioinformatics students; and more.
UBIC's primary objective as a pre-professional student organization is to equip you with the proper skills necessary for a career in bioinformatics. Professional workshops and speaker events serve to facilitate this and improve your network.
Because our community has blessed us with so many resources, we strongly believe in the importance of philanthropy. Thus, a key component of UBIC includes giving back to the community through high school outreach, clean ups, and other acts of service.
Another central component of our mission includes establishing connections between you and likeminded students. By hosting study hours and mentoring members among other gatherings, we are pushing for communication between bioinformatics enthusiasts.
