5th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology - BICoB-2013
March 4-6, 2013 - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

      Paper Submission Deadline: November 27, 2012 *** EXTENDED ***
      Notification of Acceptance: December 29, 2012

The 5th international conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
(BICoB) provides an excellent venue for researchers and practitioners in the
fields of bioinformatics and computational biology to present and publish
their research results and techniques. The BICoB conference seeks original
and high quality papers in the fields of bioinformatics, computational
biology, systems biology, medical informatics and the related
disciplines. The conference also includes a Best Paper Award given during the
conference banquet. We also encourage work in progress and research results
in the emerging and evolutionary computational areas. Computational
techniques have already enabled unprecedented advances in modern biology and
medicine. This continues to be a vibrant research area with broadening of
computational techniques and new emerging challenges. Work in the
computational methods related to, or with application in, bioinformatics is
also encouraged including: data mining, text mining, machine learning,
modeling and simulation, pattern recognition, data visualization,
biostatistics, .etc. The topics of interest include (and are not limited to):

* Genome analysis: Genome assembly, genome and chromosome annotation, gene
finding, alternative splicing, EST analysis, comparative genomics and

* Sequence analysis: Multiple sequence alignment, sequence search and
clustering, function prediction, motif discovery, functional site recognition
in protein, RNA and DNA sequences.

* Phylogenetics: Phylogeny estimation, models of evolution, comparative
biological methods, population genetics.

* Structural Bioinformatics: Structure matching, prediction, analysis and
comparison, methods and tools for docking, protein design.

* Analysis of high-throughput biological data: Microarrays (nucleic acid,
protein, array CGH, genome tiling, and other arrays), EST, SAGE, MPSS,
proteomics, mass spectrometry.

* Genetics and population analysis: Linkage analysis, association analysis,
population simulation, haplotyping, marker discovery, genotype calling.

* Systems biology: Systems approaches to molecular biology, multiscale
modeling, pathways, gene networks.

* Computational Proteomics: Filtering and indexing sequence databases,
Peptide quantification and identification, Genome annotations via mass
spectrometry, Identification of post-translational modifications, Structural
genomics via mass spectrometry, Protein-protein interactions, Computational
approaches to analysis of large scale Mass spectrometry data, Exploration and
visualization of proteomic data, Data models and integration for proteomics
and genomics, Querying and retrieval of proteomics and genomics data etc.
