The meeting will focus on bioinformatics approaches in virology, and we welcome any contributions within this cross-disciplinary field. Sub-topics include (but are not limited to):
— virus detection, annotation, and characterisation;
— study of virus populations, phylogeny, and coevolution;
— outbreak preparedness and virus eradication;
— virus-host interactions and replication;
— as well as drug design and vaccines.
Our aim is to bring together experts in virology and bioinformatics, to encourage and assist scientific exchange in both areas and initiate scientific cooperations.
We are very happy to announce invited talks by:
— Martha Clokie (Dept of Genetics and Genome Biology, Univ of Leicester)
— Stefanie Deinhardt-Emmer (Inst of Medical Microbiology, Univ Hospital Jena)
— Bas E. Dutilh (Theoretical Biology & Bioinformatics, Utrecht Univ)
— Samantha Lycett (The Roslin Institute, Univ of Edinburgh)
— Peter Simmonds (Nuffield Dept of Medicine, Univ of Oxford)
— Volker Thiel (Inst of Virology and Immunology, Univ of Bern)
We welcome contributions as poster presentation, oral presentation and/or journal publication.
Registration is free of charge.
We are further offering a PhD Travel Award worth 500 EUR sponsored by Viruses to enable a PhD student to attend the 3rd EVBC Meeting:
We look forward to welcoming old faces and new colleagues who share our excitement for computational virology!
