The PeerJ ‘InCoB 2013 Conference’ Collection goes live
We are pleased to announce that the PeerJ Collection for the “12th International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB 2013)” is now live.
InCoB (the International Conference on Bioinformatics) is a meeting with the objective of providing a platform for bioinformaticians in the Asia-Pacific region to exchange their ideas and recent advances in bioinformatics. Its organizer is APBioNet (The Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Network), which is an organization for promoting bioinformatics in the Asia-Pacific region by producing and provisioning bioinformatics resources such as databases, software, training, education and standardization guidelines.
The InCoB meetings have been held annually since 2002 and the 12th of them was held in Taicang, China, on September 20-22th, 2013. This Collection represents some of the papers accepted and presented in the meeting. This Collection may be regarded as a good sample of current activity on bioinformatics in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Collection launches with 4 preprints: “Comparative selenoproteome analysis reveals a reduced utilization of selenium in parasitic platyhelminthes” ; “Construction of microRNA functional families by a mixture model of position weight matrices” ; “An integrated pipeline for next generation sequencing and annotation of the complete mitochondrial genome of the giant intestinal fluke, Fasciolopsis buski (Lankester,1857) Looss, 1899″ ; and “Characterization of RNA in exosomes secreted by human breast cancer cell lines using next-generation sequencing.”
As more preprints are submitted, or peer-reviewed PeerJ articles accepted and published, then they will be automatically added to this growing body of work.
