                     CALL FOR PAPERS

              Bioinformatics @ BIONETICS 2010

              5th International Conference on
Bio inspired Models of Network, Information and Computing Systems

         Boston, MA, USA December 1-3, 2010
           *** Submission deadline July 16, 2010 ***

This is the second bioinformatics track as part of the 5th International
Conference on Bio inspired Models of Network, Information and Computing
Systems (BIONETICS 2010).
The aim of the bioinformatics special track is to form a closer
relationship between researchers using biology as inspiration for
computation and those using computation to study biology. In some cases,
these methods have come full circle, as when biologically inspired
computational intelligence methods are in turn used to analyze
biological data. The bioinformatics track aims to attract high-quality
research contributions in all areas of computational molecular biology.
