Our Goal

The primary objective of the Computational Life Science (CLS) technical committee is to bring together specialists from the areas of biology, chemistry, computer science and engineering that are working in this interdisciplinary environment. The goal of the TC is to provide a basis for the exchange of information and resources among the diverse communities, and enable interactions between groups from these fields.
