The 20th edition of the Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference will be hosted in Malaysia and held as a virtual conference. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers, academics, and industrial practitioners to interact. APBC2022 invites high quality original full papers on any topic related to bioinformatics and computational biology.

The submitted papers must have not been published elsewhere and not under the consideration for publication by a journal or another conference with formal proceedings. All accepted papers will have to be presented by the authors at the conference. Accepted papers will be invited to be published in IEEE/ACM TCBB, BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Genomics, BMC Medical Genomics, and Computational Biology and Chemistry following each journal’s publication policy.

What is APBC?

The Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Conference (APBC) series is an annual international forum for exploring research, development and novel applications in the field of bioinformatics. The aim of APBC is to bring together academia and industry to share knowledge and experiences, and to showcase innovations and achievements. It has been held since 2003 around Asia Pacific Regions (please refer to the Previous Meetings here).
