2nd International Workshop on Graph Theoretic Analysis of Biological Networks (IWBNA)
in conjunction with
IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2010)
Systematic study of complex interactions among molecular components is a new paradigm for identifying molecular functions or functional pathways in a global scale. In recent years, modeling and analysis of inherent, dynamic and structural behaviors of biological networks in a topological perspective have become a primary issue in bioinformatics. However, these studies have been challenging because of large scale and complex connectivity of biological networks structured by high-throughput experimental data. Typical examples include protein interaction networks, gene regulatory networks and metabolic networks. Various computational techniques, in particular, graph theoretic approaches might be applied for effective analysis of the large-scale, complex biological networks.
The 1st International Workshop on Graph Theoretic Approaches for Biological Network Analysis was held in conjunction with ACM International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ACM-BCB) in Niagara Falls, NY on August 2010. The 2nd International Workshop on Graph Theoretic Analysis of Biological Networks will be held in conjuction with IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM) in Hong Kong on December 2010. This workshop aims to bring together researchers with expertise in bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology and graph theory, and provide a forum to discuss state-of-the-art approaches for biological network analysis and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations.
