Information letter

Dear colleagues,

23-28 June, 2014 Institute of Cytology and Genetics SB RAS (Novosibirsk, Russia) holds the next International Conference on the Bioinformatics of Genome Regulation and Structure\Systems Biology, ninth since 1998. The registration for the conference is open online.

ВGRS conference series is a traditional international biennial event that gets together in Novosibirsk biologists, computer scientists, physicists, mathematicians and biochemists working in an interdisciplinary field of systems biology biotechnology and genetics. The previous event, BGRS\SB-2012, hosted more than 400 participants from 21 countries, confirming the Conference as largest system biology meeting series in Russia.

The BGRS\SB-2014 will be associated with Multi-conference «Bioinformatics and System Biology» integrating bioinformatics and experimental approaches to investigate biological systems and processes.

The Multi-conference and the BGRS\SB-2014 Program will include plenary lectures and sectional presentation, round tables, and traditional Young Scientists School “Systems Biology and Bioinformatics”.

Best materials presented at the multi-conference will be recommended by session chairmen for full-text publications in special issues of the peer-reviewed journals (with ISI impact factors).
The Organizing Committee has preliminary agreements with “Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology” (, “Journal of Inverse and III-posed Problems” (, “Journal of Biomolecular Structure and Dynamics” and “BMC Genomics” ( for post-conference special issues. The papers will be reviewed by the session chairmen and the PC members after the multi-conference to be published in 2014.

The BGRS\SB-2014 conference program will include the following sections:

  1. Genomics and epigenetics.
  2. Proteomics, metabolomics and computational pharmacology.
  3. Systems computational biology.
  4. Neurobiology.
  5. Plants Systems Biology.
  6. Systems biology of host-pathogen interactions.
  7. Evolutionary Biology.

International Symposium “Human Genetics” (Chairs: Valery P. Puzyrev, Mikhail I. Voevoda):
