BGRS\SB-2014 – 9th International Conference on the Bioinformatics of Genome Regulation and Structure\Systems Biology

From 23-28 June 2014 the Institute of Cytology and Genetics SB RAS (Novosibirsk, Russia) held the latest International Conference on the Bioinformatics of Genome Regulation and Structure\Systems Biology, the ninth since 1998. The ВGRS conference series is a traditional international biennial event that gets together in Novosibirsk biologists, computer scientists, physicists, mathematicians and biochemists working in an interdisciplinary field of systems biology biotechnology and genetics.

BGRS\SB-2014 hosted more than 400 participants from 25 countries, confirming the Conference as largest system biology meeting series in Russia. Chairman of the conference is Academician Prof. Kolchanov N.A. (Institute of Cytology and Genetics SB RAS, Novosibirsk, Russia), Co-chairman is Prof. Dr. Ralf Hofestaedt (Bielefeld University, Germany).

Advances in modern medicine are based on discoveries in the basic sciences. Personalized medicine and translational medicine are based on the data of molecular diagnostic, genetics, and pharmacogenomics. The symposium "Human Genetics" was ground for communication between specialists from different fields of science and allows integrating obtained data using bioinformatics and experimental approaches for investigation of systems and processes in medicine.

The International Conference on Mathematical Modeling and High Performance Computing in Bioinformatics, Biomedicine and Biotechnology (MM-HPC-BBB-2014) in the frames of the multi-conference was devoted to mathematical problems of computer biology. The Multi-conference and the BGRS\SB-2014 Program included plenary lectures and sectional presentation, round tables, and traditional Young Scientists School "Systems Biology and Bioinformatics" (SBB-2014). Invited scientists gave review lectures on modern topics of systems biology and computer modeling of gene networks. The School program included oral presentations by young scientists and PhD students. Best young scientists presentations were awarded by prize from the Committee and sponsors.

The open seminar of German/Russian Virtual Network on Bioinformatics "Computational Systems Biology" was organized by Prof. Dr. Ralf Hofestaedt. The seminar held open discussion about future collaboration of German and Russian scientists in bioinformatics.

Best materials presented at the multi-conference are prepared for full-text publications in high-rated journals (BMC Genomics, JBSD, JBCB).
