Call For Papers

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, phylogeny reconstruction, and structure prediction.

Previous events were held in Tarragona, Mexico City, Trujillo (Spain), Aveiro, Hong Kong and Berkeley.

The conference will address several of the current challenges in computational biology, with topics including:

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.

Special focus will be put on methodology and significant room will be reserved for scholars at the beginning of their career.

VENUE:

AlCoB 2020 will take place in Missoula, Montana, a college town located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, near Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. The meeting will be hosted in the University Center, a few hundred feet from the base of Mount Sentinel.

SCOPE:

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

Sequence analysis
Sequence alignment
Sequence assembly
Genome rearrangement
Regulatory motif finding
Phylogeny reconstruction
Phylogeny comparison
Structure prediction
Compressive genomics
Proteomics: molecular pathways, interaction networks, mass spectrometry analysis
Transcriptomics: splicing variants, isoform inference and quantification, differential analysis
Next-generation sequencing: population genomics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, epigenomics
Genome CD architecture
