The NBIC/ISNB 2007 is a joint event that includes:

The 2nd edition of the Netherlands Bioinformatics Conference (NBIC)
The 4th edition of the International Symposium on Networks in
Bioinformatics (ISNB)

April 16-19, 2007
Amsterdam, De Rode Hoed

The Netherlands Bioinformatics Conference is an initiative of the
Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre (NBIC). NBIC aims to create a lively
bioinformatics community in the Netherlands through the initiation of
programmes that consist of experts from multiple research groups. For
example the research programme BioRange, in which computer scientists
and biologists cooperate in projects related to genomics themes, such
as bioinformatics for micro array technology, proteomics and
metabolomics. In the first edition in 2006, the NBIC conference focused
on this research programme. In 2007 NBIC does not focus on a
specialized theme, but aims to offer an internationally appealing
conference programme for the bioinformatics community at large.

The focus of 4th International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics
will be on biological networks such as metabolic, signal transduction
pathways and genetic regulatory networks. Understanding of these
networks is crucial for understanding molecular and cellular processes
in the organism or system under study. This field is subject of lively
research and both experimental and computational approaches are used to
elucidate the biological networks. The bioinformatics of biological
networks involves a broad range of research and approaches. Research
includes the identification of regulatory elements in DNA,
developmental biology, genome context analysis, modelling and
simulation of pathways, reconstruction of pathways from experimental
data, visualization of pathways, and the representation of pathways in
database, graphs and mark-up languages.
