The annual German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) has brought together renowned international scientists in bioinformatics, computational biology, biostatistics, biology and medicine since 1993. The 25th GCB was held in Tübingen from 18th to 21st of September 2017, making its second appearance at the vivid university city with its internationally renowned medical faculty as well as the faculty of science, and several top research institutes like the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology. This environment has created and attracted several internationally recognized research groups in bioinformatics, computational biology, and biomedical data science out of which many have contributed in organizing the GCB 2017.
Following are the abstracts of posters accepted for presentation at the conference, showing the wide range of different areas from bioinformatics infrastructure to theoretical approaches in single cell analyses.
