14 Days of Cross-Disciplinary Training in Computational Biology for Graduate Students.
June 12-25, 2022 - Bangkok, Thailand

Hands-On Guidance and Instruction in:

  • Genome Sciences
  • Structure Prediction
  • Molecular Dynamics Simulations
  • Emerging Topics

COMPBIO22 participants will be eligible for continued and more advanced instruction through participation in COMPBIO23 in Singapore.


We have received a good number of applications. We have emailed conditional offer letters to finalist applicants and waiting for their replies to evaluate if offers need to be extended to additional applicants. Congratulations to the finalist candidates who have received an email from us. Thanks to everyone for patiently waiting during the process. We also plan to host two satellite workshops later this year. Applicants not successful this time will have the opportunity to apply for the satellite workshops. We are still accepting applications on a rolling basis from the USA, Thailand, and Indonesia.

The current pandemic has brought unique constraints to arranging an in-person workshop. To adapt to the pandemic situation, we have changed the workshop venue from Malaysia to Thailand. We will update further details on the website in the coming weeks. Travel costs and cultural excursions, food, and lodging (i.e., the registration fee) will be provided for 22 successful applicants from *Asia and 22 successful applicants from the USA (U.S. citizens, nationals, or permanent residents).

*Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, India, Indonesia, Mongolia, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Korea. We especially encourage applications from women and students from the first 14 countries listed above (i.e., Afghanistan through Vietnam).

If you would like to self-fund attendance to the workshop you can pay a registration fee of $2,400 and pay for your own travel to the workshop. (Registration fee includes training and practice materials, food, lodging, and cultural excursions).

The University of Montana, in collaboration with the University of Putra Malaysia, Perdana University in Malaysia, the National University of Singapore, the National Science and Technology Development Agency of Thailand, the Agency for Science, Technology, and Research of Singapore, and the National Supercomputing Center of Singapore, is organizing two advanced studies workshops in computational biology. Each workshop will be two weeks long and held in 2022 and 2023. The workshops will cover topics in the analysis of sequence data, molecular modeling, molecular dynamics, and other current and advanced topics. Scientists from the USA, Europe, and Asia will be present as instructors at the workshops. These workshops are partially supported by NSF award # 1953405 and an Asi@Connect Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN) program grant.

The institutions mentioned above have joined hands with Dhaka University in Bangladesh, Bezmialem Vakif University in Turkey, and PT Riset Perkebunan Nusantara, Indonesia, to organize two additional workshops in Indonesia and Bangladesh for undergraduate and master's students from *Asia (country names listed above) in the fall of 2022. Please visit this website for updates and the application process for those two satellite workshops.
