*About BICoB*
The 8th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational
Biology (BICoB) provides an excellent venue for researchers and
practitioners in the fields of bioinformatics to present and publish their
research results and techniques. Bioinformatics and computational biology
continue to be a vibrant research area with broadening applications and new
emerging challenges. In recent years, bioinformatics and computational
biology have experience significant advances driven by computational
techniques in bioinformatics. The BICoB conference seeks original and high
quality papers in the fields of bioinformatics, computational biology,
systems biology, medical informatics and the related areas. Work in the
computational methods related to, or with application in, bioinformatics is
also encouraged including: bio-data mining, text mining, machine learning,
biomathematics, modeling and simulation, pattern recognition, data
visualization, biostatistics, .etc. The topics of interest include (and are
not limited to):

*Genome analysis: *Genome assembly, genome annotation, gene finding,
alternative splicing,
     EST analysis and comparative genomics.
*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
*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.
  *Journal Publication:* Authors of selected high quality papers in
BICoB-2016 will be invited to submit extended version of their papers for
possible publication in bioinformatics journals
(selected high quality papers in previous years were published in the Journal
of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (JBCB)
<http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscinet/jbcb> special issues).

* Paper submission site:

*Conference chair:*
Hisham Al-Mubaid, University of Houston at Clear Lake, hisham from uhcl.edu
*Program Co-Chairs:*
Nurit Haspel: University of Massachusetts at Boston, USA,
nurit.haspel from umb.edu
