Call for Paper: Inbix’2020

Bioclues.org, India’s largest Bioinformatics society enters 15 years in service when the organization has set up vision 2020 in 2015. The society has organized her debut onsite Inbix’17 conference in Jaipur during November 2017 and Inbix’19 in HMV, Jalandhar which were a huge success.

Bioinformatics Professional Registry

This registry aims to gather information on educators, researchers and enthusiast in the field of bioinformatics in the Asia Pacific region. This is not restricted to APBioNet members and thus open to any bioinformatics practitioner/enthusiast in the region. The database would serve as a gateway to connect bioinformatics educators, researchers, and enthusiasts to each other and also with the scientific community at large, addressing the needs of the field from the perspective of research, education and/or services. This registry will be made available eventually on the APBioNet website for public access.
