The Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference series is an annual forum for
exploring research, development, and applications in bioinformatics. The 4th
Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference, APBC2006, will be held in Taipei,

High-throughput sequencing and functional genomics technologies have given us a
human genome sequence and have enabled large-scale genotyping and gene
expression profiling of human populations. Databases containing large numbers
of sequences, polymorphisms, and gene expression profiles of normal and
diseased tissues in different clinical states are rapidly being generated for
human and model organisms. Bioinformatics is thus rapidly growing in importance
in the understanding of the interplay between genes and proteins, in the
analysis the genetic variability of species, etc. The aim of this conference is
to bring together researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners for
interaction and exchange of knowledge and ideas. We invite submissions that
address conceptual and practical issues of bioinformatics.

Topics of Interest
Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:
?Novel Methods and Applications in Bioinformatics
?Data Mining & Statistical Modeling of Biological Data
?Computational Analysis of Biological Data
?Modeling and Simulation of Biological Processes
?Visualization of Biological Processes and Data
?Management, Migration, and Integration of Biological Databases
?Access, Indexing, and Search in Biological Databases
?Pathways and Systems Biology
?Structural Bioinformatics
?Population and Statistical Genetics
?Comparative Genomics
?Evolutionary Biology

APBC2006 invites high-quality original papers on any topic related to
Bioinformatics. Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length conforming to
the formatting instructions for the series Advances in Bioinformatics &
Computational Biology (instructions available at the APBC2006 website). Each
paper will be fully refereed by an international program committee. Papers will
be judged on originality, significance, correctness, and clarity. Authors should
submit one copy of a PDF or PS file to APBC2006 Paper Submission Website. The
full paper must be submitted by 15 July 2005. The proceedings will be published
as a volume in the series Advances in Bioinformatics & Computational Biology by
Imperial College Press. Expanded version of the best papers will be invited for
publication in the Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. To
publish the paper in the conference, one of the authors needs to register for
and present at the conference.
