3RD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ALGORITHMS FOR COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY


  

ALCOB 2016 

  

TRUJILLO, SPAIN 

  

JUNE 21-23, 2016


Organized by: 

Computer Architecture and Logic Design Group (ARCO)


University of Extremadura 

Extremadura Centre for Advanced
Technologies (CETA-Ciemat) 

Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics
(GRLMC) 

Rovira i Virgili University

************************************************************************************


AIMS: 

AlCoB aims at promoting and displaying excellent research
using string and graph algorithms and combinatorial optimization to deal
with problems in biological sequence analysis, genome rearrangement,
evolutionary trees, and structure prediction. 

Previous events were
held in Tarragona (2014) and Mexico City (2015). 

The conference will
address several of the current challenges in computational biology by
investigating algorithms aimed at: 

1) assembling sequence reads into a
complete genome, 

2) identifying gene structures in the genome, 

3)
recognizing regulatory motifs, 

4) aligning nucleotides and comparing
genomes, 

5) reconstructing regulatory networks of genes, and 

6)
inferring the evolutionary phylogeny of species. 

Particular focus will
be put on methodology and significant room will be reserved to young
scholars at the beginning of their career. 

  

VENUE: 

AlCoB 2016
will take place in Trujillo, homeland of the so-called "conquistadores"
who arrived in Peru in the XVI century. The venue will be the
Extremadura Centre for Advanced Technologies. 

  

SCOPE: 

Topics of
either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:


Exact sequence analysis 

Approximate sequence analysis 

Pairwise
sequence alignment 

Multiple sequence alignment 

Sequence assembly


Genome rearrangement 

Regulatory motif finding 

Phylogeny
reconstruction 

Phylogeny comparison 

Structure prediction


Compressive genomics 

Proteomics: molecular pathways, interaction
networks 

Transcriptomics: splicing variants, isoform inference and
quantification, differential analysis 

Next-generation sequencing:
population genomics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics 

Microbiome
analysis 

Systems biology 

  

STRUCTURE: 

AlCoB 2016 will consist
of: 

invited lectures 

peer-reviewed contributions
