The RECOMB conference series was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific forum for theoretical advances in computational biology and their applications in molecular biology and medicine. The conference solicits research contributions from all areas of computational molecular biology. Typical but not exclusive topics of interest include:
Molecular sequence analysis
Sequencing and genotyping technologies
Gene regulation and epigenomics
Transcriptomics, including single-cell
Population and statistical genetics
Evolution and comparative genomics
Structure and function of non-coding RNAs
Computational proteomics and proteogenomics
Computational structural biology
Protein structure and function
Computational systems biology
Privacy of biomedical data
The origins of the conference came from the mathematical and computational side of the field, and there remains a focus on computational advances. In addition, the effective use of computational techniques in biological discovery is also an important aspect of the conference. Accepted abstracts will be published as a proceedings volume in the Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI) series from Springer-Verlag, which will be available at the conference.
Several satellite meetings will take place from May 3-4 in advance of the main meeting. See the main conference website for a list.
