Applications (ISBRA'09, http://www.cs.gsu.edu/isbra09/).

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Dealing with complex missing data patterns
* Effects of structural genomic variation
* Gene-gene and gene-environment interactions
* Multiple hypotheses testing
* Population substructure
* Using biological networks in whole-genome studies
