ECCB08 European Conference on Computational Biology
Sept 22 - Sept 26, 2008, Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy

ECCB is the major European conference in Computational Biology and

The conference covers computational methods for molecular biology that
arise in the context of genomics and proteomics technologies in the
fields of molecular biology, molecular medicine and pharmaceutics.
Biological areas of interest include genomes and protein analysis,
algorithms and phylogeny, transcriptomics, structural bioinformatics,
proteomics, text mining, pathways and interactions, databases, systems
biology and bioinformatics for diseases.

The conference will start in the afternoon of September 22nd and it will
be preceded by a workshop and tutorial session. It will end on September
26th at lunch time.
