Aims and Scope
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has played an increasingly important role in the analysis of sequence, structure and functional patterns or models from sequence databases. Bioinformatics aims to store, organize, explore, extract, analyze, interpret, and utilize information from biological data. The main outcome of this workshop is to present latest results in this exciting area at the intersection of biology and AI.
AI approaches can revolutionize new age of bioinformatics and computational biology with discoveries in basic biology, evolution, metagenomics, system biology, regulatory genomics, population genomics and diseases, structural bioinformatics, protein docking, next-generation sequencing (NGS) data processing, chemoinformatics, etc.
Bioinformatics provides opportunities for developing novel AI methods. Some of the grand challenges in bioinformatics include protein structure prediction, homology search, epigenetics, multiple alignment and phylogeny construction, genomic sequence analysis, gene finding and gene mapping, as well as applications in gene expression data analysis, drug discovery in pharmaceutical industry, etc.
Two questions will be at the heart of this workshop :
This one-day workshop aims at bringing together scholars and practitioners active in Artificial Intelligence driven Bioinformatics, to present and discuss their research, share their knowledge and experiences, and discuss the current state of the art and the future improvements to advance the
We encourage papers with important new insights and experiences on artificial intelligence from the modeling and simulation of biological systems. Those contributions should shed light on one of the two questions mentioned above. Topics of interest lie at the intersection of AI and Bioinformatics. They include, but are not limited to, the following inter-linked topics:
