                       5th International Workshop on
                   Bioinformatics Research and Applications

                           in conjunction with

                  2nd Workshop on Computational Issues in
                            Genetic Epidemiology

            Nova Southeastern University, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA
                            May 13-May 16, 2009


The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications (ISBRA) 
provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among researchers, 
developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of bioinformatics and 
computational biology and their applications. The fifth edition of the 
symposium will be held on May 13-May 16, 2009 at Nova Southeastern University, 
Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA in conjunction with the 2nd Workshop on 
Computational Issues in Genetic Epidemiology.

The technical program features 6 invited keynote talks:

   * Web-based, participant-driven association studies: research at 23andMe
     Nick Eriksson (23andMe)

   * Evolution of Regulatory Systems in Bacteria
     Mikhail Gelfand (Russian Academy of Sciences)

   * Networks of Relatedness Within and Across Populations
     Itsik Pe'er (Columbia University)

   * Interpreting population sequencing data
     Shamil Sunyaev (Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School)

   * Bioinformatics Challenges in Translational Research
     Nicholas Tsinoremas (University of Miami)

   * Motif Construction from High-Throughput SELEX Data
     Esko Ukkonen (University of Helsinki)

The program includes contributed papers and posters covering a broad range of 
topics in bioinformatics and computational genetic epidemiology, including gene 
expression analysis, biological networks, comparative genomics, phylogenetics, 
structure prediction, DNA self-assembly, sequence analysis, population 
genomics, and genome-wide association studies.
