            6th International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research
                        and Applications (ISBRA'10)

                             May 23-26, 2010
                University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT, USA

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 6th
edition of the symposium will be held on May 23-26, 2010 at the University
of Connecticut in Storrs, CT, USA.

The technical program features 6 invited keynote talks:

* Tracing the early cell divisions of mouse embryos by
   single cell RNA-seq,
   Catalin Barbacioru, Life Technologies

* Successes and failures of elegant algorithms in
   computational biology,
   Piotr Berman, Pennsylvania State University

* Human Genome Annotation,
   Mark Gerstein, Yale University

* Structure of Proximal and Distant Regulatory Elements in the
   Human Genome,
   Ivan Ovcharenko, National Center for Biotechnology Information

* Combinatorics in Recombinational Population Genomics,
   Laxmi Parida, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center

* Predicting and Analyzing Cellular Networks,
   Mona Singh, Princeton University

Contributed oral presentations and posters will cover a broad range of
topics in bioinformatics including

* Interaction Networks
* Phylogenetics
* RNA And Protein Structure Alignment
* Protein Clustering And Evolution
* Population Genetics
* Large Scale Data And Integration
* Protein Binding
* Next-Generation Sequencing
* Gene Expression Analysis

Thanks to our sponsors, a small number of travel fellowships will be
available for graduate students and post-doctoral scholars. Preference will
be given to those presenting their work at the symposium. Please submit a
one-page vita and abstract of the poster or paper that will be presented to
Dr. Raj Sunderraman (raj@cs.gsu.edu) with "ISBRA 2010 Travel Fellowship" in
the subject of the email. The requests are to be submitted by April 23,


Abstracts describing late-breaking original research are solicited 
in all areas of bioinformatics and computational biology, including the 
development of experimental or commercial systems. Topics of interest 
include but are not limited to:

* Biomedical databases and data integration
* Biomolecular imaging
* Bio-ontologies
* Comparative genomics
* Computational genetic epidemiology
* Computational proteomics
* Data mining and visualization
* Gene expression analysis
* Genome analysis
* High-performance bio-computing
* High-throughput sequencing data analysis
* Molecular evolution
* Molecular modeling and simulation
* Pattern discovery and classification
* Phylogenomics
* Population genetics
* Software tools and applications
* Structural biology
* Systems biology

Abstracts should be submitted no later than May 7, 2010 by
following the instructions at


Accepted abstracts will be published online and on CD-ROM and presented as 
posters at the symposium.  Submission implies willingness of at least one 
author to register and present at the symposium.
