Conference : TBC 2017 – September 29-October 1, 2017 in Los Angeles.

TBC 2017 will be held September 29-October 1, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Please mark your calendars!!

Translational Bioinformatics Conference (TBC) will aim to highlight the multi-disciplinary nature research field and provide an opportunity to bring together and exchange ideas between translational bioinformatics researchers. TBC puts its initial emphasis on promoting translational bioinformatics research activities initiated in Asia-Pacific region such that the first annual will be held in Seoul, Korea. Translational bioinformatics is a rapidly emerging field of biomedical data sciences and informatics technologies that efficiently translate basic molecular, genetic, cellular, and clinical data into clinical products or health implications. Translational bioinformaticians with a mix of computer scientists, engineers, epidemiologists, physicists, statisticians, physicians and biologists come together to create the unique intellectual environment of our meeting.

TBC 2017 will be held September 29-October 1, 2017 in Los Angeles. We already have excellent keynote speakers lined up. Our theme this year is “Translational Bioinformatics in Precision Medicine”. More info at: http://ritchielab.com/index.php/tbc2017/.

Please consider submitting your work:

Call for Papers

  • The Proceedings of TBC 2017 will publish abstracts only without publishing the full-length manuscripts to protect from “prior publication”.
  • Selected papers will be invited to a special article of JAMIA.
