Welcome to InCoB 2018
On behalf of the Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet) and organizing partners, it is our great honour to invite you to join the 17th International Conference On BioInformatics (InCOB-2018), which will be held on 26-28 September, 2018 at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi.
Since 2002, InCoB has grown in its second decade to become one of the largest bioinformatics conferences in the Asia-Pacific region. This annual conference showcases the latest research and technologies in all areas of bioinformatics, and in recent years has been attended by practitioners from both biology fields and computing backgrounds in the Asia-Pacific region. As in the past, papers in the conference will be published in international, peer-reviewed journals, such as BMC Bioinformatics, BMC Systems Biology, BMC Genomics, Bioinformatics and PeerJ. Oral and poster presenters will have the opportunity to deposit their slides/posters with F1000 Posters.

As the organisers of InCOB18, we sincerely hope that all of you will join us in New Delhi for what will definitely become a memorable conference.
