Young Researchers in BioSciences International Symposium found at its fifth edition and brings an innovative touch in contrast to the traditional science gatherings. Students for Nature Organization (OSpN-Organizația Studenților pentru Natură) and Institute for Science and Innovation in Society (ISIS), in collaboration with our host, the Faculty of Biology and Geology, Babeş-Bolyai University are proud to present a step forward for our 5th edition of Young Researchers in Bio-Sciences international symposium. This event will take place between 23rd and 29th of July, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. 2018 brings with itself the fifth edition of this symposium and with it many more participants who want to grow and meet scientists who work in different branches of this field, thus learning new and exciting elements and facts. The work we have had the opportunity of discovering through past participants was from different scientific domains such as Genetics, Bio-archaeology, Ecology, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, and Molecular Biology. Though these are the ones presented to us, we are not limited to them, we are open to all biology related topics, as we are trying to form a network of scientists that can find new points of research, and maybe even form partnerships. The participants we have met over the last four years have come from a broad spectrum of cultures, South Korea, Norway, Iran, Hungary, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, Poland, USA, Moldavian Republic, Pakistan, as well as from Romania, some of them attending the symposium for more than one time. We hope you will be one of them. Are you studying chemistry, physics, mathematics or anything else science related but your work has applications in biology? We do want you to present your work here!
