Bioinformatics.Org was founded to facilitate world-wide communications and collaborations between practicing and neophyte bioinformatic scientists and technicians. The Organization provides these individuals, as well as the public at large, free and open access to methods and materials for and from scientific research, software development, and education. We advocate and promote freedom and openness in the field as well as provide a forum for activities which facilitate the development of such resources.
  • Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers TheIEEE and its predecessors, the AIEE (AmericanInstitute of Electrical Engineers) and the IRE (Institute ofRadio Engineers), date to 1884. From its earliest origins, the IEEE has advanced the theoryand application of electrotechnology and allied sciences, served asa catalyst for technological innovation and supported the needs ofits members through a wide variety of programs and services. The IEEE promotes the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro and information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession.
  • IEEE Computer Society With nearly 100,000 members, the IEEE Computer Society is the world's leading organization of computer professionals. Founded in 1946, it is the largest of the 37 societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The Computer Society's vision is to be the leading provider of technical information and services to the world's computing professionals. The Society is dedicated to advancing the theory, practice, and application of computer and information processing technology.
  • The TeX Users Group TUG was founded in 1980 for educational and scientific purposes, to provide an organization for those who have an interest in typography and font design, and are users of the TeX typesetting system invented by Donald Knuth. TUG is run by and for its members and represents the interests of TeX users worldwide. The Comprehensive TeX Archive Network (CTAN) is the primary repository for TeX-related software on the Internet. CTAN has many thousands of items, from whole systems to LaTeX packages, and much more.
