About GLBIO Conferences
The GLBIO Conference
papers are published in
the on-line journal
The Great Lakes
Bioinformatics Conference began in 2006 as the Ohio Conference
on Computational Biology (OCCBIO) hosted by the Ohio
Bioinformatics Consortium (www.ohiobioinformaticsconsortium.org
In 2010 the ISCB Board of Directors voted to make this an
official conference of the ISCB, with an expanded regional scope
that included a new name: GLBIO.
An important goal of this regional conference is to foster
long-term, collaborative relationships among informatics and
life sciences researchers and educators from academia,
government, and industry, spanning the North American Great
Lakes region including the states of Illinois, Indiana,
Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin
in the U.S, and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.
Researchers from all parts of the world are welcome and
encouraged to participate, especially those looking to form
collaborations with key labs in the Great Lakes region.
GLBIO provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussing
approaches, research findings, and educational experiences
regarding computational investigations of biological problems.
This meeting is not only for experts in bioinformatics, but also
for faculty, students and staff who make substantial use of
bioinformatics tools in their work, or would like to expand
their use of these tools that are vital to increasing the
understanding of living systems.
The annual meeting includes invited keynote presentations, oral
presentations selected from peer reviewed abstract submissions,
tutorial workshops, special sessions, and poster presentations.
