The University of Valencia hosts the tenth Conference on Bioinformatics and Genomics, between December 15 and 16, in the Charles Darwin Room on the Burjassot Campus. The symposium, organised by the University of Valencia (UV), the Catalan Society of Biology (SCB) and the Bioinformatics Barcelona association (BIB), is coordinated by Ferrán Palero (Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, ICBiBE) and Ana Conesa (Institute for Integrative Systems Biology, I2SysBio).

The meeting, with open registration here, aims to promote the development of bioinformatics, genomics and their respective applications. It will bring together more than 150 scientists from various countries, who will participate in the form of oral presentations with their posters. All presentations will be in English.

The main objective of the X Conference on Bioinformatics and Genomics is to promote scientific interaction between the different groups of international specialists, as well as to present the research and advances carried out in this field. Specifically, the symposium will focus on understanding the genome in humans and other organisms, on new technological developments, applications, and on the impact of genomic data on evolutionary biology, among other areas.

Three internationally recogniSed specialists will deliver the master lectures: Max Blaxter (director of the New Tree of Life Program at the Sanger Institute), Yolanda Sanz (Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology) and Julio Sáez-Rodríguez (Institute of Computational Biomedicine, University of Heidelberg, Germany).

On behalf of the University, the organiSers are the Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, an entity of the UV, and the Institute of Integrative Systems Biology, a joint centRe of the University and the Higher Council for Scientific Research.
