The Next-generation Computational Biology - With the advancement in next-generation molecular technology in generating the high-throughput "omics" data, life science has come to the era of "big data". To extract biological knowledge from the data, and translate it into benefits for society (e.g. better medicine and healthcare), novel and advanced computational tools are needed for data analysis. CSBio 2017 would like to invite researchers and industrial counterparts to meet at this event to exchange ideas and stimulate research collaborations. This year the conference will be held in conjunction with The Eighth International Symposium on Information and Communication Technology (SoICT 2017).
