List of Accepted Papers and Extended Abstracts  *



The Brazilian Symposium on Bioinformatics (BSB) 2009 invites submission of original papers in the area of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. BSB 2009 aims to attract contributions from academic and industrial researchers in computer science, mathematics, statistics, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics, microbiology, and medicine.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Sequence Analysis, Motifs, and Pattern Matching

- Biological Databases, Data Management, Data Integration, and Data Mining

- Biomedical Text Mining

- Structural, Comparative, and Functional Genomics

- Protein Structure, Modeling, and Simulation

- Gene Identification, Regulation and Expression Analysis

- Gene and Protein Interaction and Networks

- Molecular Docking

- Molecular Evolution and Phylogenetics

- Computational Systems Biology

- Computational Proteomics

- Statistical Analysis of Molecular Sequences

- Algorithms for Problems in Computational Biology

- Applications on Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Medicine, Microbiology and associated subjects.


Submitted papers will undergo blind peer review. The proceedings of BSB 2009 will appear in a special issue of the series Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI), published by Springer-Verlag, Germany."

As in previous editions, BSB 2009 will accept two kinds of contributions: full papers, with up to 12 pages, and extended abstracts, with at most four pages. Accepted full papers are expected to be orally presented at the conference, while extended abstracts will be presented in the poster sessions. The program committee may accept as extended abstract a paper originally submitted as full. Authors of such submissions may choose to accept this decision and modify their manuscript accordingly, or drop the submission.

The manuscripts should be written in English and start with a cover page containing only the title of the work, an abstract, keywords, a succinct statement of the problem, and the results obtained. A technical exposition directed to specialists should follow in pages identified only by the title of the article. DO NOT INCLUDE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE AUTHOR'S NAMES AND ADDRESSES. Detailed formatting instructions can be found in the Springer-Verlag site, under "Information for LNCS Authors", at
