APBC 2007 January 15-17, 2007
Hong Kong, China
The Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference series is an annual forum for exploring research, development and novel applications of Bioinformatics. The Fifth Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference, APBC2007, will be held in Hong Kong.
High-throughput sequencing and functional genomics technologies have given us a human genome sequence and have enabled large-scale genotyping and gene expression profiling of human populations. Databases containing large numbers of sequences, polymorphisms, and gene expression profiles of normal and diseased tissues in different clinical states are rapidly being generated for human and model organisms. Bioinformatics is thus rapidly growing in importance in the understanding of the interplay between genes and proteins, in the analysis of the genetic variability of species, etc. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners for interaction and exchange of knowledge and ideas. We invite submissions that address conceptual and practical issues of bioinformatics.
Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:
Sequence Analysis
Motif Finding
Recognition of Genes
RNA Analysis
Physical and Genetic Mapping
Evolution and Phylogeny
Protein Structure Analysis
Microarray Design
Transcriptome, Gene Expression
Pathways, Networks and Systems
Databases and Data Integration
Text Mining
Population Genetics/SNP/Haplotyping
Comparative Genomics, Genome Rearrangements
APBC2007 invites high-quality original papers on any topic related to Bioinformatics. Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length, all-inclusive -- title, addresses, abstract, text, figures, tables, and references, conforming to the formatting instructions (Latex2e, Word style files) for the series Advances in Bioinformatics & Computational Biology. Authors should submit one copy of a PDF file to APBC2007 Paper Submission Website. Expanded version of the selected papers will be invited for publication in Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
All questions related to the APBC 2007 can be sent to us at apbc@cs.hku.hk.
