Description:

Bioinformatics is a computational science that is inherently multidisciplinary as a combination of biology, computer science, and information technology. With the recent developments in high-throughput technologies such as next generation DNA sequencing and DNA microarray, a seemingly never-ending amount of data is being generated on a continual basis. As the nature of the data becomes ever larger and more complex, it is necessary to develop more efficient algorithms and computational methods to deal with this enormous challenge.

The ICONIP2011 special session on "Computational Advances in Bioinformatics" (CAB 2011) aims to bring together experts and researchers from the multidisciplinary field of bioinformatics to discuss the latest advances in the computational aspect of bioinformatics.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

  • Molecular evolution and phylogeny
  • Functional genomics
  • Proteomics
  • Metabolomics and other omics
  • Structural bioinformatics
  • Gene expression and microarray analyses
  • Biomarker discovery
  • Disease classification
  • Parallel and grid computing for bioinformatics
  • Bio-image and signal analysis
  • Medical and biomedical informatics
