About the conference

The first virtual conference on "Bioinformatics to Systems Biology" took place on November 16, 2007, online at the Bioinformatics Organization. For last year’s conference, please click here. This year’s conference, Bioinformatics to Systems Biology 2008 (BSB ’08), is aimed at students and those in the research community who fall under broader disciplines of bioinformatics and systems biology. The BSB ’08 conference will include invited keynote talks within sub-disciplines of these two exciting fields. In addition to keynote addresses, individuals are invited to submit abstracts for presentation as talks in concurrent sessions, or as posters. Ample time will be set aside for discussion during the presentation of participants. In the coming days, we will be adding a lot of information to this website that will provide you with detailed information on BSB ’08.
