APBioNET promotes the advancement of bioinformatics in research and education through training programs, workshops, symposia, conferences, collaboration among the bioinformatics community, including policy makers, and dissemination of bioinformatics themed information focusing on the Asia-Pacific region. APBioNET liaises with and/or supports other organizations promoting bioinformatics in research and academia. In this regard, APBioNET is a Regional Affiliate of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), supporting the aims of ISCB for the benefit of the bioinformatics community in the Asia-Pacific region.

Events and Workshops

The annual International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB) is widely recognised as the one of Asia’s oldest and largest conferences on bioinformatics

International Symposium on Bioinformatics (InSyB) bridges the gap between InCoB and irregular local APBioNet-supported workshops or training courses.

BWF is a joint effort that aims to grow bioinformatics skills and competencies in the community.
