Second Symposium on Bioinformatics and Bioforensics (SBB’17)

The aim of Second Symposium on Bioinformatics and Bioforensics (SBB’17) is to provide a platform for researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals to present their research results and development activities in bioinformatics and bioforensics.  SBB’17 invites original and unpublished work from individuals active in the broad theme of the symposium. Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account in EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at: . The program committee solicits previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in any aspect of bioinformatics and bioforensics.
