International Conference on Bioinformatics 2004 Planned for "Aotearoa" - The Land of the Long White Cloud

International Conference on Bioinformatics 2004 planned for “Aotearoa” – the land of the long white cloud
Nau Mai, Haere Mai - Welcome to New Zealand! From September 5 through 8, 2004, the Aotea Centre in Auckland will become the site of the third International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB). The conference is being hosted by the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution and the Bioinformatics Institute, University of Auckland.

InCoB 2004 is the third annual international conference of the Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet). The importance of bioinformatics in the face of the ever-increasing amounts of biological data cannot be denied and it is for this reason that scientists in the Asia Pacific region are striving to use database management, artificial intelligence, data mining and knowledge representation to provide key solutions to the questions posed by their research, particularly on local resources of economic and strategic importance. InCoB provides an international platform for experts and budding bioinformaticians to address the development of cutting-edge computational biology applications and findings on interdisciplinary research such as molecular evolution, health, agriculture, microbes and tropical diseases and on sequence and structure analysis.
