ISCB-Latin America SoIBio BioNetMX International Conference on Bioinformatics 2020 aims to promote scientific and professional exchange in bioinformatics across Latin America, this event is organized by the Bioinformatics Network Mexico (BioNetMX) together with the Iberoamerican Society of Bioinformatics (SoIBio) and the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB).
New technological developments, such as Next Generation Sequencing, revolutionized biology by providing the capacity of generating high-throughput experimental data. Nevertheless, this also posed the challenge of how to analyze and give biological sense to terabytes of data.
Bioinformatics brings together scientists from different disciplines, such as Biology, Informatics, Genomics, Mathematics, Statistics, Ecology, Medicine, etc, to solve relevant biological questions. This conference will bring together people from these areas (trainees, industry, and scientific leaders), and will provide a forum to showcase major scientific developments. Importantly, this event will help the Bioinformatics community strengthen interactions within Latin America, a region that has shown great potential in the area.
This conference will provide the environment for the interchange of ideas between researchers developing algorithms and researchers with interesting problems that require new algorithms to be developed. Moreover, scientists with no or very little knowledge on informatics will have the opportunity to learn about the new findings in the development of high-end tools for the analysis of their biological data.
This interdisciplinary conference will have a great impact in the scientific community providing an environment to exchange ideas and harness abilities across different areas.
The Interface Focus Journal has committed to creating a special issue for this conference with up to twelve peer-reviewed articles.
Guidelines for article preparation can be found here
Article submissions will be open from February 1st to July 15th. Giving enough opportunity for authors to prepare their manuscripts. The review period will be from April 1 st to June 1 st . We will give authors two months to reply to comments in order to have the list of accepted articles at the end of September. Outstanding articles will be selected for featuring talks.
