Call for Papers for Technical Session on

BIOCOMPUTING AND BIOINFORMATICS


 

 
 
 

Bioinformatics has emerged as a new branch of biology as a result of the advancement of experimental technologies in molecular biology which generate a vast amount of data as exemplified by high-throughput DNA sequence technology. Whole genome sequences are now available for several organisms, including bacteria, eukaryotes and multicellular organisms such as Drosophila, resulting in the rapid expansion of DNA and protein databases. It is rapidly growing and exciting area of science that uses computational modeling approaches to face the challenges of major biological problems. By integrating modern approaches in biochemistry and the molecular sciences with those in computing and informatics. Bioinformatics is the field of science that will allow scientists to mine the very large (and rapidly expanding) collections of data that is being generated from the modern science of Genomics.

Bioinformatics now plays an integral role in the study of fundamental biomedical and agricultural and public health problems. Scientist have made an attempt to exploit the bioinformatics tools to control the vector borne disease like malaria, filarial and Japanese Encephalitis.

Bioinformatics is now integral to understanding the biological, functional and evolutionary significance of the genomic data and the associated computational aspects. The proposed conference is aimed at scientists from diverse backgrounds, including: biological, computer, biomedical, agricultural, and physical sciences, engineering, and information systems/technology.
