We are delighted to invite you to the 5th International Symposium on Bioinformatics (InSyB2021), to be held virtually from 15-17 December 2021. InSyB is a flagship event of Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNET) and is hosted by Bezmialem Vakıf University. This is the first time it will be hosted by an entity in Turkey and due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, it will be a virtual event. InSyB focuses on thematic discussions targeting younger researchers. The theme of InSyB2021 is “Bioinformatics: Back to the Fundamentals”. Admission is FREE!

In this post-genomic era, biological data is growing rapidly and bioinformatics provides the lifeline to manage and mine data for knowledge discovery. Through the symposium, we aim to bring together students, academics, and industry players who are working on different aspects of biomedical sciences and healthcare for cross-pollination of ideas and towards building collaborations and lasting networks. It’s a great opportunity to exchange ideas with luminaries from the field.
