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,
EST analysis and comparative genomics.
*Sequence analysis:* Multiple sequence alignment, sequence search and
prediction, motif discovery, functional site recognition in
protein, RNA and DNA sequences.
*Phylogenetics: *Phylogeny estimation, models of evolution, comparative
*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,
*Genetics and population analysis: *Linkage analysis, association
analysis, population simulation,
haplotyping, marker discovery, genotype calling.
*Systems biology:* Systems approaches to molecular biology, multiscale
*Computational Proteomics: *Filtering and indexing sequence databases,
and identification, Genome annotations via mass spectrometry,
Identification of post-translational
modifications, Structural genomics via mass spectrometry,
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).
