About BICoB
The 7th 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-2015 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 JBCB special issues).
