Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (2nd edition)

As an integral part of biological research, the field of bioinformatics brings forth innovative computational approaches leading to high-impact results in an increasingly data-dense environment.

After a sold-out first edition in March 2016, this second edition will feature recent developments in bioinformatics research, and highlight the power of computational biology in the fields of medical, agricultural, and biotechnology research. Renowned speakers will present how bioinformatics is applied broadly in life sciences, and shed light on the future perspectives of their research.


During four plenary sessions, the speakers will focus on the topics:

  • Medical Integrative Omics
  • Proteomics and Metabolomics
  • Structural Bioinformatics
  • Systems Biology

​Conference attendees will have ample networking opportunities besides an exciting scientific program.
