11th-13th May 2023

The Romanian Society of Bioinformatics (RSBI) organizes the 2023 RoBioinfo Conference, Bucharest, 11th-13th May 2023.

This year’s agenda will be divided between two equally important topics: human genomics and biodiversity-microbiome in the context of the opportunities and challenges of data federation.

The RoBioinfo 2023 Conference received funding through the Bilateral Fund associated with the EEA and Norwegian Grants 2014-2021, a program operated in Romania by the Executive Agency for Higher Education, Research, Development and Innovation Funding (UEFISCDI).

Conference venue: Institute of Cellular Biology and Pathology "Nicolae Simionescu".

Main Topics

  1. Human Genomics Federation and Standardised Analysis
    a. Human genomics data analysis
    b. Federation of human Genomics Data
  2. Biodiversity - Microbiome
    a. Microbiome in health
    b. Microbiome diversity
    c. Methods for microbiome analysis
    d. Bacterial genomes
