Conference 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
