Education and Training Programme Portal

Dear Colleague,

APBioNet is in the process of creating a portal to capture all bioinformatics short courses, bachelor degree, online courses on bioinformatics and related discipline.

The database would serve as a gateway to connect and support bioinformatics educators, researchers, and enthusiasts to each other and also with the scientific community at large, addressing the needs of the field from the perspective of research, education and/or services. This portal will be made available eventually on the APBioNet website for public access.

We invite your participation to this education portal and we greatly appreciate if you could forward this to your connection as this registry is not restricted to APBioNet members and thus open to any bioinformatics practitioner/enthusiast in the region.

Participate in this effort by filling up this form (click here).

Thank you.

InCoB2020 – APBioNet’s First Virtual Conference

19th International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB), with the theme of “Bioinformatics and the Translation of Data-Driven Discoveries”. The conference was held from the 25th to 29th November 2020 and organized virtually, by the Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNET), for the first time. The conference aimed to bring together researchers, decision makers, educators and scholars from the Asia-Pacific region and beyond for a scientific discourse and exchange on the state-of-the-art in the field, while providing for networking opportunities. Despite the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, InCoB 2020 successfully attracted 181 registrants, with as many as 134 presentation submissions. A total of 71 were research manuscripts submitted for publication consideration in as many as 10 partner journals

Call for Paper: Inbix’2020, India’s largest Bioinformatics society enters 15 years in service when the organization has set up vision 2020 in 2015. The society has organized her debut onsite Inbix’17 conference in Jaipur during November 2017 and Inbix’19 in HMV, Jalandhar which were a huge success. Keeping in purview of the conference series, the next conference would be hosted at North Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong, Meghalaya during April 16-18, 2020.  We, the Indian Conference on Bioinformatics 2020 (Inbix’20) organizers hope this opportunity will not only foster interactions and collaborations among practitioners but will also allow young researchers interact with the world leaders, who are among the top researchers in the bioinformatics and computational biology. While we spur on this annual event, the organizers  welcome all bioinformaticists across the world to take part in this august conference as North Eastern Hills awaits your presence.
