Call for Abstracts

Manuscripts on computational methods and algorithms for studying microbial organisms, viruses, and their communities from omics and marker data should be designated as part of the “Bioinformatics of Microbes and Microbiomes” area during the submission process. Proceedings submissions will be managed by the ISMB/ECCB program committee and will be reviewed by external experts.
