About Event

The massive amount of information and sequence data that emerged from the Human Genome Project has opened new vistas for exploring the functional role of genes. Machine learning techniques, Next Generation Sequencing, Genome wide studies, Systems Biology approaches, Microarrays and High Throughput assays have enabled the understanding of gene expression mechanisms and patterns. The International Conference on Structural and Functional Genomics will address the advances in the field in Functional Genomics, Systems Biology, gene expression and next generation sequencing besides structural biology initiatives and drug design that have captured the interest the past decade. This Conference brings together high profile researchers from the academic and industrial arena to discuss the evolving trends in the field and would provide an ideal platform for understanding newer directions and opportunities in the field.


The International Conference on Structural and Functional Genomics welcomes submission of abstracts arising out of original work on the following areas: •Protein - Nucleic Acid Interactions •3D Structures of Proteins and Nucleic Acids •Protein Folding •Molecular Dynamics simulations of macromolecular complexes •Gene function prediction / Annotation •Systems Biology •Functional Genomics •Molecular pathway analysis •Computational Epigenetics •Cell Based Simulations •High Throughput Screening / Microarray based data analysis •Next Generation Sequencing •Transcription Networks/ Transcriptomics •Immunoinformatics •Comparative Genomics •Computational Drug Design •Machine Learning in Bioinformatics •Algorithm /Database Development Abstracts should include a title, names and affiliations of authors and the abstract text. •Abstract length: 200 words •Font : Times New Roman, Size: 12pt •Line spacing: 1.5pt •Abstracts should be uploaded in the .pdf format •Last date of submission of abstracts : 1st December 2012 Keynote Speakers •George D.
