Call For Papers

Call for Papers of the Special Session SOCO15-SS01

Soft Computing Methods in Bioinformatics

to be held within the

10th International Conference on Soft Computing Models in

Industrial and Environmental Applications (SOCO 2015)

Burgos, Spain.

15th - 17th June, 2015


The amount of information from biological experiments and the applications involving large-scale high-throughput technologies are rapidly increasing nowadays. Soft computing algorithms are well-suited for many complex optimization and data mining problems from bioinformatics and computational biology including gene selection, clustering and classification, signal processing and image analysis. The scope of this special session covers the development of computational models and algorithms for bioinformatics data mining. This special session will highlight the applications of soft computing methods to a broad range of topics from bioinformatics.

Microarray and gene expression analysis
Gene regulatory and ontology networks
Protein and RNA structure prediction
Analysis of large biological datasets
Data integration and fusion
Classification and clustering
Feature selection
Signal processing
Text mining in molecular biology
Gene regulation and transcriptomics
Molecular docking and drug design
Metabolic pathway analysis
Image analysis in bioinformatics
Computational proteomics
