Gribskov said, “In the end, it is all about the science.
The ISCB represents the opportunity for everyone involved in computational biology, throughout the world, to speak with a united voice and be heard.
Even before ISCB was officially founded, the board recognized that a new scientific society representing computational biology had the duty to serve all researchers with an interest in using computational techniques to investigate problems of a biological nature.
In spite of having the legal and tax papers in order, Hunter found that banks in Maryland were wary of a scientist bearing a $30,000 check, a letter from the IRS granting the Society provisional non-profit status, and an official address that turned out to be Hunter’s cabin in the woods along the Potomac River.No one cared about bioinformatics or had any idea of what it was or how to find people who did it." In the early days, the gap between the computer science and molecular biology disciplines was significant and was especially apparent at meetings like the 19 Spring Symposia on Artificial Intelligence and Molecular Biology. abenteuer dating Heilbronn "There was a lot of mutual education that went on back then—the biologists didn’t understand that much about computer science and the computer scientists didn't understand that much about biology," Hunter said.In an email to the board discussing the incorporation of the Society, Hunter proposed the new name and pronunciation of its acronym, the "Society for Computational Biology," abbreviated SCB, which could be pronounced "scob" or "ess cee bee".The word “International” was added to the name in recognition of the nature of its intended membership, the pronunciation became "eye ess cee bee" or ISCB. The Society’s original administrative structure was modeled as a combination of the American Association for Artificial Intelligence and the American Association for Anatomists.

In 1990, Temple Smith, a pioneer in computational biology, marked the state of the field in an article on the history of genetic databases in the journal ISCB founder, Larry Hunter, recalled what it was like to be one of the few people with an interest in applying computational approaches to biological investigation.He said, "It was really hard to find people who did this work in either computer science or molecular biology.He had generated a popular database of researchers interested in artificial intelligence and molecular biology from research papers and conference mailing lists.In 1992, he invited the researchers listed in his database to an NLM meeting held jointly with the National Science Foundation on the future of what was termed ‘artificial intelligence in molecular biology’.Hunter canvassed nearly every bank in Bethesda, searching for an institution that would allow him to open an account.
