SUBMIT A PAPER


The 2014 RECOMB/ISCB Conference on Regulatory and Systems Genomics has developed partnerships with Genome Research, Journal of Computational Biology and Molecular Systems Biology to publish full-length papers submitted to the conference.

Submission Deadline: Friday, July 25, 2014, 11:59 pm (Pacific Time)

We will accept two types of papers for consideration for publication.

  • Research article papers will be considered for publication in Genome Research and Molecular Systems Biology. Appropriate experimental validation data is required for manuscript to be considered for this track.
  • Theory papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of Computational Biology.

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PAPER

Please use this link to EasyChair to submit your paper. Please DO NOT submit your manuscript directly to the journal.

You will be asked to provide information about yourself and your coauthors, the title and abstract for your paper, and keywords. The button to upload your paper is at the bottom of the form, and EasyChair requires that it be submitted as a pdf file. If you do not already have an EasyChair account, you can log in to create one at the link.

IMPORTANT: In the "Keywords" field, please indicate the journal(s) whom you would like to consider your paper for publication. You can indicate Genome Research,  Journal of Computational Biology or Molecular Systems Biology as keywords. If you would like to submit your paper for consideration at all publications, please indicate the names of all journals as separate keywords on three lines, in addition to other keywords that are relevant to your paper.

Please see the journal websites for information about formatting requirements (see author guidelines for Genome Research, the Journal of Computational Biology and Molecular Systems Biology). Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words.

REVIEW PROCESS

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the program committee, and papers judged to be of high merit will be selected for fast-track submission to one of our partner journals. High-quality papers that are primarily computational or theoretical in focus will be included in the conference proceedings, which will be published by the Journal of Computational Biology. Selected papers with strong experimental validation will be submitted to the editorial board of Genome Research and Molecular Systems Biology for their consideration on an expedited basis, though the final decision about publication will be made by the Journal editors. If your paper is submitted to Genome Research or Molecular Systems Biology and the editors decide against publishing it, it will not be eligible for publication in the proceedings published in the Journal of Computational Biology.

The corresponding author for each of the accepted full-length papers will be invited to give an oral presentation at the conference.

Only papers that are judged by the organizing committee to be of the highest quality will be selected for submission to our partner journals. If you submit a paper and the committee decides against recommending it for publication, you may still be invited to participate in a poster session. Abstracts for accepted papers and for poster presentations will be included in a conference program booklet, which will be distributed at the meeting and available online.

TOPICS


This conference is designed to present the latest findings about regulatory and systems genomics, foster discussion about current research directions, and establish new collaborations that will advance the development of a systems-level understanding of gene regulation. Some possible topics include:

  • Modeling and recognition of regulatory modules and motifs
  • Epigenomics, chromatin state
  • Non-coding Chromatin state establishment, maintenance, and role in development
  • Regulatory non-coding RNAs
  • Co-transcriptional, post-transcriptional, and translational regulation
  • Regulatory networks
  • Genetic, molecular, and phenotypic variation and human disease
  • Cellular signatures of biological responses and disease states
  • Mathematical modeling and simulation of biological systems
  • Methods for systematic validation of high-throughput biological predictions
  • Single-cell biology, proteomics, signaling
  • Metabolomics
  • Ensemble approaches
  • Translational systems biology
