ISCB-LA SOIBIO EMBnet 2018

unnamed

The fifth International Society for Computational Biology Latin America, SOIBIO and EMBnet Joint Bioinformatics Conference 2018 (ISCB-LA SOIBIO EMBnet 2018) will take place in Viña del Mar, Chile, on November 5 – 9, 2018.

The major aim of the ISCB-Latin America, SOIBIO and EMBnet Joint Bioinformatics Conference 2018 is to inspire and foster collaborations between regional scientists and students to advance research in the areas of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The scientific program showcases exceptional keynote speakers, original research scientific talks, and poster sessions.

ISCB-LA SOIBIO EMBnet 2018 will attract top regional and international scientists in the life sciences and offers a strong scientific program focused on scientific discovery in diverse subject areas through bioinformatics/computational biology. Topics of interest include sequence analysis, evolution and phylogeny, comparative genomics, protein structure, molecular and supramolecular dynamics, molecular evolution, gene regulation and transcriptomics, RNA biology, proteomics, systems biology, ontologies, biological networks, databases and data integration, text and data mining and information extraction, and human health.

The scientific program includes abstract submissions so plan to submit to present your research. Plan to come to learn about the latest developments in the field, network with colleagues, and help shape the future of computational biology and bioinformatics in Latin America! This exciting biannual conference attracts over 300 researchers and students from around the globe. Abstracts of original research selected for presentation may be published in the ISCB Community Journal or another identified academic journal.

Inscripciones de Papers y Posters abierta

ISCB-LA SoIBio EMBnet 2018 invites papers, abstracts, and posters for consideration forpresentation at the conference. Original research, including significant works-in- progress, and recently published work (published on or after January 1, 2017) are solicited in all areas that involve the application of advanced computational methods to significant problems in biology or medicine. While we encourage submissions in new and emerging areas, we expect that the majority of submissions addressing topical biological domains will fall into one of the areas below:
