Short description

The first Belgrade Bioinformatics (BelBI) conference organized by the Bioinformatics group from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Mathematics, in cooperation with several other institutions from Belgrade will be held in Belgrade between June 20th and 24th.  

Description

The main purpose to illuminate different aspects of bioinformation systems, from theoretical approaches to modeling different phenomena in life sciences, to information technologies necessary for analysis and understanding huge amount of data generated, to application of computer science and informatics in the domain of precision medicine, finding new remedies against debilitating diseases (like cancer and neurodegeneration) and drug development.

The conference is planned to focus on three main research fields including (but not limited to) the following topics:

Theoretical Approaches to BioInformation Systems:

  • Structure and function of DNA, RNA and proteins
  • Gene expression and the genetic code
  • Neurons and cognition
  • Biological networks

Bioinformatics and Data Mining for OMICs Data:

  • Data mining methods, algorithms, and applications in life sciences and precision medicine
  • Big data and data science
  • Data analytics, pattern recognition and machine learning in data analysis
  • Software and tools in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, etc.
  • Sequence analysis
  • Predictive Models for OMICs data
  • Bioinformatics databases and algorithms

Biomedical Informatics will focus on information applied to or studied in the context of biomedicine:

  • Translational Bioinformatics
  • Disease Models & Epidemiology
  • Predictive Modeling and Analytics in Healthcare
  • Biomedical Imaging and Data Visualization
  • Biomedical/Health database integration and management
  • Biomedical data/text mining

Invited speakers

NEW Abstract submission: until April 15th, 2016

Registration is now open.
