Print | Close | Text Size:A A A

A Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Symposium was held in Beijing Institute of Genomics (BIG), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) on Oct. 27-28. More than 20 top scientists in different fields attended this meeting.

The symposium focused on computational molecular biology, molecular modeling and analysis method, supercomputing for systems biology and database, population genetics and molecular evolution. Participants openly discussed the current status and prospect of computational biology.

Scientists come to share their research on cancer genome, microbial genome, animal and plant genome, high performance computing, pioneering and interdisciplinary research on mathematics, biology and medicine, new generation sequencer development and the construction of computational biology, exchanging their views on the topics.

As one of three key breakthroughs of development strategy, BIG will be dedicated to significantly improve the ability of bioinformatics computing, establish complete mass biological data storage, transfer, analysis and utilization system, and provide first-rate contribution to the solution of certain issues in life sciences.
