Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications (ISBRA) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among researchers, developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of bioinformatics and computational biology, and their applications. Submissions presenting original research are solicited in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. It will be hold in Institute of Computing Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences Beijing, China, 8–11 June, 2018.

ISBRA has been successfully held, 13 times, since 2005. Several famous researchers have joined the conference committees. Excellent speakers from different countries will present their results. For all details, please see http://alan.cs.gsu.edu/isbra18/, where the full list of presenters is available.
