Applied Bioinformatics in Life Sciences (4th edition)

Bioinformatics has quickly become an integral part of life sciences research by enabling innovative computational approaches in an increasingly data-dense environment.

Inspired by the sold-out editions in 20162018, and 2020, VIB (a non-profit life sciences research institute) is organizing this fourth edition to highlight recent developments in bioinformatics research, and to showcase its impact in medical, agricultural, and biotechnological research.

Nationally and internationally renowned speakers will present recent scientific findings in applied bioinformatics. They will shed light on the future perspectives of their research in the following plenary sessions:

  • Image analysis
  • Single cell analysis
  • Proteomics and metabolomics
  • Data integration

Besides an inspiring scientific program, conference participants will have ample networking opportunities during poster sessions and the conference dinner.
