*_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 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.
*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).
