Call for Participation: InSyB 2023

The 7th International Symposium on Bioinformatics (InSyB 2023) will be held virtually on the Dec 14, 2023.

We are delighted to invite you to the 7th InSyB, the theme of which is “Integrative Bioinformatics: Bridging Scales from Molecules to Ecosystems”. The symposium will include invited talks, presentations of original research results by APBioNET student ambassadors, and workshops.

InSyB is a flagship annual event of the Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNET), established in 1998 and is one of the oldest (25 years) and notable bioinformatics organisations in the Asia & Pacific region. The other flagship event of APBioNET, the International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB) completed its 22nd run in 2023, hosted by Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Brisbane, Australia. InSyB is a sister event to InCoB with a focus on thematic discussions targeting early stage researchers. The InSyB symposium was inaugurated in 2017, held in Indonesia by Universitas YARSI and this year is the 7th instalment of InSyB. It was founded to encourage, support and extend computational biology for translational research, primarily aimed at infusing bioinformatics into life science and health science research and providing a forum for networking.

Arthropod-borne viruses (arboviruses) are mostly vectored by mosquitoes and transmitted to humans in tropical regions of the globe. However, as extreme climatic events and climate change as a whole continues both vectors and transmitted viruses are expanding their range to previously arbovirus-free areas. Using genomic surveillance my group is mapping the spread of high impact viruses such as Dengue and Chikungunya in South America and Brazil. We developed a range of tools for rapid genome assembly and analysis of circulating lineages that allowed us to reconstruct the transmission route of these viruses and detect the autochthonous transmission and large outbreaks in the south of Brazil. In this talk, I will address the tools and results reached using them.

Call for Participation: InCoB 2023

The 22nd International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB 2023) will be held from Nov 12-15, 2023 at the Translational Research Institute (TRI), Brisbane, Australia.

We are delighted to invite you to the 22nd InCoB, the theme of which is “Translational Bioinformatics Transforming Life”. The conference will include keynote talks, presentations of original research results, discussions in plenary sessions, poster sessions, workshops, software demos and panel discussions related to the field of bioinformatics. This is a great opportunity for you to showcase your research!

The International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB) is a scientific conference primarily aimed at scientists in the Asia Pacific region and has been held annually since 2002. Originally organised by coordination between the Asia and Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNET) and the Thailand National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC) in 2002, the meeting has since been the flagship conference of the APBioNET, where APBioNET’s Annual General Meeting is held.
