       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.  Submissions presenting 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
* Population genetics
* Software tools and applications
* Structural biology
* Systems biology

We seek two categories of submissions: extended abstracts of up to 12 
pages in Springer LNCS format, and short abstracts of up to 4 pages. 
Both types of submissions must be made electronically by following 
the instructions at


Submission implies willingness of at least one author to register and 
present at the symposium.

Accepted extended abstracts will be published prior to the symposium 
in Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics series and 
presented orally at the symposium.  Accepted short abstracts will be 
published online and on CD-ROM and selected for either oral or poster 
presentation.  As in previous years, full versions of selected 
extended abstracts presented at the symposium will be invited to a 
peer-reviewed special issue of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational 
Biology and Bioinformatics.  The authors of remaining extended and 
short abstracts will be invited to submit full versions to a 
peer-reviewed volume to be published after the symposium in BMC
