The 13th International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB2014) will commence on Thursday 31st July and conclude on Saturday 2nd August at Novotel Sydney Brighton Beach, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. The conference themes include:
promoting the integration of bioinformatics with –omics
high performance and supercomputing in bioinformatics
clinical and health informatics for understanding complex biological and medical systems.
We would love to know more about your research work. Full paper (BMC Genomics, BMC Systems Biology, BMC Bioinformatics and PeerJ) and abstract (F1000) submissions are now open.
Areas of interest include:
- Disease Informatics
- Genomics and Transcriptomics
- Protein Bioinformatics
- Sequencing, Sequences and Evolution
- Structural Bioinformatics and Ligand design
- Pathways and Networks
- Systems Biology
- Ontologies and Text Mining
- High performance and Supercomputing in Bioinformatics
- Systems Biology
- Other Emerging Areas
We also welcome proposals for breakout sessions. Additionally, a limited number of APBioNet Travel Fellowships are available.
InCoB2014 encourages the exchange of scientific breakthrough amongst participants, particularly between local participants in Australia and the Asia‐Pacific, as this will be the first time in this decade that InCoB is coming to these southern shores. Hot topics in translational bioinformatics, population genetics, drug design and discovery, biomarker identification, systems biology, biological sequence analysis, expression data analysis, scalable data storage and other relevant subjects will be covered.
