GLBIO 2021 does not have a conference proceedings, but accepted full papers will be considered by PLOS Computational Biology or PLOS One  for inclusion in a special issue devoted to GLBIO 2021.

A wide definition and inclusion of bioinformatics/computational biology will be considered, and topics of interest include the following:

  • Algorithms & Machine Learning
  • Bioinformatics Education
  • Biostatistics
  • Cheminformatics
  • Clinical & Health Informatics
  • Databases, Ontologies & Biocuration
  • Disease Models & Molecular Medicine
  • Epidemiology & Biodiversity
  • Evolutionary, Comparative Genomics & Phylogenetics
  • Gene Regulation & Transcriptomics
  • Genome Informatics
  • Image Analysis
  • Macromolecular Structure & Function
  • Metagenomics
