The Fifth Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference, APBC2007,
will be held in Hong Kong during  15 - 17 January 2007.
See http://www.cs.hku.hk/apbc2007.
The Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Conference series is an annual
forum for exploring research, development, and novel
applications bioinformatics.  The aim
of this conference is to bring together researchers,
professionals, and industrial practitioners for interaction and
exchange of knowledge and ideas. We invite submissions that
address conceptual and practical issues of bioinformatics.
Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

Sequence analysis
Motif Finding
Recognition of Genes
RNA Analysis
Population genetics/SNP/Haplotyping
Physical and Genetic Mapping
Comparative Genomics, Genome rearrangements
Evolution and Phylogeny
Protein structure analysis
Microarray design
Transcriptome, Gene Expression
Pathways, Networks and Systems
Databases and Data Integration
Text Mining

APBC2007 invites high-quality original papers on any topic
related to Bioinformatics. Papers should be no more than 10 pages
in length conforming to the formatting instructions for the series
Advances in Bioinformatics & Computational Biology (instructions
available at the APBC2007 website). Papers will be
judged on originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.
Authors should submit a PDF file according to the instructions on the
APBC2007 Paper Submission Website. The full paper must be
submitted by 15 July 2006.
The proceedings will be published as a volume in the series Advances in
Bioinformatics & Computational Biology by Imperial College Press.
Expanded version of the best papers will be invited for publication
in the Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
Inclusion of a paper in the proceedings is contingent on one of the
authors registering and presenting at the conference.
