The UK-CBCB conference is designed to bring together biologists, bioinformaticians, computer scientists, software engineers and data scientists across the life sciences to share innovations, applications and best practice in their fields.

The conference will be applicable to bioinformatics researchers working on core services or in research teams as well as computer scientists or bioinformaticians developing tools or maintaining data resources.

We are delighted to have confirmed the following sessions:



Structural Bioinformatics - analysis and prediction of three-dimensional molecular structures

Metagenomics and Microbial Bioinformatics - the diversity and complexity of microbial genomes and identification in environmental samples

Single-Cell Genomics - using omics technologies to provide greater resolution at the cellular level and improve understanding of cell responses in their microenvironment

Data Management - approaches for validation, storage and protection of data under the FAIR principles

Bridging Genotype to Phenotype - computational approaches to deciphering the complex interactions between genotype and environment and how these affect phenotype

Computational Proteomics and Metabolomics - harnessing large-scale studies to determine protein and metabolite function for the discovery of biomarkers

This conference is supported by the ELIXIR-UK community.

Register today.

Registration deadline: 27 September 2020

Participation: Open to all
