Details of Session:

Aim and Scope

Bioinformatics is the application of information technology to the  
field of molecular biology. Over the past few decades rapid  
developments, from one hand, in the technological procedures  
generating vast amount of data and from the other hand, in the  
information technologies enabling the handling of these data has  
brought about this exciting new field termed Bioinformatics which aims  
to shed light into several biological processes.

This invited session aims to provide a platform for researchers to  
share their ideas, experience and research outcomes in Bioinformatics.  
The field of Bioinformatics being by nature a multi disciplinary  
field, we encourage submissions addressing Bioinformatics related  
topics seen from many different perspectives. Authors are invited to  
submit papers based upon academically rigorous research in both  
theoretical development and applied research.

Subject Coverage

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

The application of smart systems to the Bioinformatics area

Databases in the field of Bioinformatics

Services & Tools in the field of Bioinformatics

High throughput data storage & analysis

Comparative Genomics

Genome wide association studies


Proteomics & Bioinformatics

Protein-protein interactions

Molecular evolution & Bioinformatics

Systems Biology

Bioinformatics using Intelligent and Machine Learning Techniques

Bioinformatics and the revolution in scholarly publishing
