Call For Papers

AlCoB aims at promoting and displaying excellent research using string and graph algorithms and combinatorial optimization to deal with problems in biological sequence analysis, genome rearrangement, phylogeny reconstruction, and structure prediction.

AlCoB 2020 & 2021 will merge the scheduled program for AlCoB 2020, which could not take place because of the Covid-19 crisis, with a new series of papers submitted on this occasion.

Previous events were held in Tarragona, Mexico City, Trujillo (Spain), Aveiro, Hong Kong and Berkeley.

The conference will address several of the current challenges in computational biology, with topics including:

    ◗ assembling sequence reads into a complete genome,
    ◗ identifying gene structures in the genome,
    ◗ recognizing regulatory motifs,
    ◗ aligning nucleotides and comparing genomes,
    ◗ reconstructing regulatory networks of genes, and
    ◗ inferring the evolutionary phylogeny of species.

Special focus will be put on methodology and significant room will be reserved for scholars at the beginning of their career.


Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:

    ◗ Sequence analysis
    ◗ Sequence alignment
    ◗ Sequence assembly
    ◗ Genome rearrangement
    ◗ Regulatory motif finding
    ◗ Phylogeny reconstruction
    ◗ Phylogeny comparison
    ◗ Structure prediction
    ◗ Compressive genomics
    ◗ Proteomics: molecular pathways, interaction networks, mass spectrometry analysis
    ◗ Transcriptomics: splicing variants, isoform inference and quantification, differential analysis
    ◗ Next-generation sequencing: population genomics, metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, epigenomics
    ◗ Genome CD architecture
    ◗ Microbiome analysis
    ◗ Cancer computational biology
    ◗ Systems biology
