International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology - BIOCOMP BG 2012 
Welcome to the official website of the 2012 International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, BIOCOMP BG 2012, which will be held in Varna, Bulgaria, during the period of September 20-21, 2012. There will be a strong focus on the bioinformatics challenges, arising from the extraordinary developments in high throughput technologies. BIOCOMP BG 2012 aims to bring researchers, scientists, engineers, and scholar students together so they can exchange and share their experiences, new ideas and research results about all aspects of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, as well as to discuss the practical challenges they have encountered and the solutions adopted to solve them.
The conference aims to provide an ideal platform for people to share research ideas and experiences in the fields of Bioinformatics, Computational Biology and related areas.
English is the official language of the conference. We welcome abstract submissions. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • High-performance bio-computing
  • High-throughput sequencing data analysis (NGS)
  • Bio-ontologies
  • Molecular evolution
  • Comparative genomics
  • Molecular modeling and simulation
  • Computational genetics 
  • Computational proteomics
  • Data mining and visualization
  • Software tools and applications
  • Gene expression analysis
  • Gene networks
  • Structural biology
  • Genome analysis
  • Databases
