The Barcelona Supercomputing Center, in the framework of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science and as part of the BSC’s Bioinfo4Women programme, invites you to discover the work of women bioinformatics researchers and to visit the MareNostrum 4, the most powerful supercomputer in Spain.

Through informal 15-minute talks, we seek to establish a link with young students, encouraging their involvement in the bioinformatics research field and strengthening their professional motivation in the areas of personalized medicine, genome analysis, natural language processing applied to biomedicine and the evolution of genomes from a molecular perspective.


The first Advances in Computational Biology conference will bring together researchers working on systems biology, omics technologies, artificial intelligence and high-performance computing with applications to biology from both the public and private sectors.

From the Life Sciences Department at BSC we are working to visualize and improve the work of women leaders in science. Currently the department counts with different women working as Principal Investigators, Senior Researchers, PostDocs, PhD Students, Technicians and Management Staff.

The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) proposes to generate a place where the citizens can learn about scientific research. On this visit, the young university students will see the research being carried out by women Biocomputing technicians of the BSC on topical subjects such as personalized medicine, genome analysis, natural language processing applied to medicine and the design of proteins for therapeutic uses.


SHE STEM is a non-profit initiative that aims to bring STEM disciplines to young girls between 14 and 16 years old through workshops, interviews and activities with leading women from the world of science and technology, the aim is to invite young women to experiment and develop projects within the STEM disciplines.
