8th International Workshop on Biomolecular Interaction Network Analysis and Interactomics (IWBNA)

in conjunction with

IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM 2015)


 

Systematic study of complex interactions between molecular components is a new paradigm for characterizing molecular functions and functional pathways in a genomic scale. Modeling and analysis of the inherent, dynamic, and structural behaviors of interaction networks from a topological perspective is a primary issue in current bioinformatics research. However, these tasks have been challenging because of the large scale and complex connectivity of the genome-wide interaction networks, structured by high-throughput experimental data. A wide range of computational techniques, in particular, graph-theoretic approaches, have been applied for effective analysis of the large-scale, complex networks. These studies will have a great potential for various biomedical applications.

The 8th International Workshop on Biomolecular Interaction Network Analysis and Interactomics (IWBNA) will be held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedicine (BIBM) at Washington DC on November, 2015. This workshop aims to bring together researchers with expertise in bioinformatics, computational biology, systems biology, functional genomics and interactomics, and provide a forum to discuss state-of-the-art approaches for interaction network analysis and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Biomolecular interaction network modeling
  • Function prediction from interaction networks
  • Signaling pathway identification
  • Protein complex or functional module detection
  • Protein and genetic interaction prediction
  • Network motif analysis
  • Network dynamics and evolution
  • Graph data mining algorithms
  • Querying and retrieval of interaction data
  • Integration of genome, proteome and interactome data
  • Semantic analysis of interactome data
  • Application tools for interaction network analysis
