The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications (ISBRA) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among researchers, developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications. Submissions presenting original research are solicited in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology, including the development of experimental or commercial systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to

Biomarker discovery High-performance bio-computing
Biomedical databases and data integration Metagenomics
Biomedical text mining and ortologies Molecular evolution
Biomolecular imaging Molecular modelling and simulation
Comparative genomics Next-generation sequencing data analysis
Computational genetic epidemiology Pattern discovery and classification
Computational proteomics Population genetics
Data mining and visualization Software tools and applications
Gene expression analysis Structural biology
Genome analysis Systems biology
