|Description||What is APBC?
The Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference (APBC) series is an annual international forum for exploring research, development and novel applications in the field of Bioinformatics. The aim of APBC is to bring together academia and industry to share knowledge and experiences, and to showcase innovations and achievements. It has been held since 2003 around Asia Pacific Regions (please refer to the Previous Meetings).
The Fifteenth Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference will be held in Shenzhen, China. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers, academics, and industrial practitioners. APBC2017 invites high quality original full papers on any topic related to Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The submitted papers must have not been published or under the consideration for publication in any other journal or conference with formal proceedings. All accepted papers will have to be presented by one of the authors at the conference. Accepted papers will be invited to be published in Bioinformatics, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Genomics, BMC Systems Biology, IEEE/ACM TCBB and Computational Biology and Chemistry following each journal's publication policy.
Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics::
• Sequence analysis, especially high-throughput sequencing applications
• Genomics, Epigenetics, Metagenomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics
• RNA structure and function
• Comparative genomics, Population genetics
• Evolution and phylogeny
• Protein structure analysis
• Systems biology, Synthetic biology, Quantitative biology
