RECOMB 2017 is the 21st in a series of well-established scientific conferences bridging the areas of computational, mathematical, statistical and biological sciences. The conference features keynote talks by preeminent scientists in life sciences, proceeding presentations of peer-reviewed research papers in computational biology, and poster sessions on the latest research progress.
The conference series aims at attracting research contributions in all areas of computational molecular biology, including but not limited to: molecular sequence analysis; recognition of genes and regulatory elements; molecular evolution; protein structure; structural genomics; analysis of gene expression; biological networks; sequencing and genotyping technologies; drug design; probabilistic and combinatorial algorithms; systems biology; computational proteomics; structural and functional genomics; information systems for computational biology and imaging.
The origins of the conference are in the mathematical and computational side of the field, and there remains a certain focus on computational advances. However, effective applications of computational techniques to achieve biological innovation remain a central aspect of the conference.
The RECOMB Conference Series (http://www.recomb.org/) was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific forum for theoretical advances in computational biology and their applications in molecular biology and medicine. Previous RECOMB conferences were held at:
