PBSoft along with the Institute of Computational Technologies, Novosibirsk State University, HP Technology Education and Research Center and others was a co-organizer of the Third International Summer School for Young Scientists "Evolution, Systems Biology and High Performance Computing Bioinformatics" June 29-July 2, 2008. 

It was carried out in the framework of the Sixth International Conference on Bioinformatics of Genome Regular and Structure (BGRS'2008) co-event.

The main focus of this interdisciplinary school-seminar was a timely problems of applied supercomputer calculations in resolution of bioinformatics, evolutionary and system biology issues. Leading specialists from Russia and other countries gave lectures on timely issues that arise in parallel computations in biology, perticularly in phylogenetic tree building, structural functional analysis of macromolecules, systems biology, data and text-mining systems biology.

A session of oral and poster reports of young scientists was held in the frames of past School. The best reporters were awarded with prizes. The attendees of the courses and workshops received certificates.
