Description
 
The Fifth Annual RECOMB Conference on Bioinformatics Education (RECOMB-BE) will be held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, April 1, 2014. RECOMB-BE 2014 will focus on bioinformatics education for undergraduate and graduate students, with a special emphasis on students in the life sciences. The conference will consist of invited keynote presentations, oral and poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts, and discussion panels. RECOMB-BE will immediately precede the Eighteenth International Conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology (RECOMB), which also will be held in Pittsburgh, April 2-5, 2014. Rapid advances in the life sciences and in related information technologies necessitate the ongoing refinement of bioinformatics education, training, and learning strategies in order to maintain their relevance and to enhance their effectiveness. In response to this need, RECOMB-BE 2014 will address best practices in teaching bioinformatics and computational biology to life science students.
