The Eleventh Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference (APBC2013) Vancouver

The Eleventh Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference, APBC2013, will be held in Vancouver, Canada from 21-23 Jan 2013. Registration dates upcoming.


APBC2013 invites high-quality original full papers on any topic related to Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
Accepted papers will be invited to be published in the journals BMC Genomics or BMC Bioinformatics, following the journals’ publication policy.

The Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference (APBC) series, founded in 2003, is an annual international forum for exploring research, development and applications of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners from all over the world for interaction and exchange of knowledge and ideas in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology.

Conference Organizers are Dr. Steven Jones (APBC2013 General Chair)  and S. Cenk Sahinalp (APBC2013 PC Chair).  The conference website is located at:
