SolBio International Conference 2016 on "Bioinformatics and Computational Biology for Innovative Genomics"
22-26 April 2016. Riviera Maya (MEXICO). NEW WEB-SITE: http://icwmexico2016.soibio.org

This is an international conference organized by SoIBio, with the support of the International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB), the Laboratorio Internacional de Investigación sobre el Genoma Humano (LIIGH, UNAM) and the Centro de Ciencias Genómicas (CCG, UNAM), that wants to bring together the scientific and technological studies of many groups and institutions from IberoAmerica (including 22 countries) working in the field of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. This year the meeting will be focused on the application and use of biocomputational tools and methods to studies on genomics and genome sciences. The development of the omic era in biological sciences has introduced current scientific research into many genome-wide or genome-driven studies that are producing lots of complex large scale data. This new era of Big Data in biology can only be addressed with a parallel development and application of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology to the processing and management of such complex data. The need to improve and promote this research in Latin America is really deep and this meeting organized by SoIBio will be a great opportunity to do it. The conference will be held in the Riviera Maya (Mexico) from 22 to 26 of April 2016.
