Welcome to IEEE CIBCB 2017

Manchester

The IEEE International Conference on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (IEEE CIBCB 2017) will be organized by the University of Manchester, Manchester, UK and will be held at the INNSIDE Hotel from August 23rd to 25th, 2017.

This annual conference has become a major technical event in the field of Computational Intelligence and its application to problems in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, chemical informatics, bioengineering and related fields. The conference provides a global forum for academic and industrial scientists from a range of fields including computer science, biology, chemistry, medicine, mathematics, statistics, and engineering, to discuss and present their latest research findings from theory to applications.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:CI in Bioinformatics

  • Evolution, phylogeny, comparative genomics
  • Gene expression array analysis
  • Metabolic pathway analysis
  • MicroRNA analysis
  • Molecular sequence alignment and analysis
  • Pattern recognition/data mining/optimization methods in Bioinformatics
