Call for Posters - ISCB Africa ASBCB 2013

Dear ISCB and ASBCB Members and Colleagues,

The poster submission deadline for the ISCB Africa ASBCB 2013 Conference on Bioinformatics is coming up on December 12, 2012. Be sure to submit your poster by this date to be eligible to apply for a travel fellowship. The conference is being held in Tunis, Tunisia, March 13th -15th, 2013, and registration is now open.

The meeting will include topics of general interest in bioinformatics, with a special focus on the bioinformatics of African pathogens, vectors, and human genetics. We especially welcome abstracts on the bioinformatics of diseases relevant to Africa, and with the new Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) initiative the genetics focus is particularly relevant and timely.

Poster Abstracts:  due by December 12th
