ISMB/ECCB 2021: Evolution & Comparative Genomics COSI

ISMB/ECCB 2021 July 25-30, 2020 Online Virtual Conference

The fourth edition of the EvolCompGen session will be held on July 25-30, 2021, as part of joint Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology and European Conference on Computational Biology (ISMB/ECCB 2021), held as an online conference.

The COSI calls for paper and abstract submissions on topics of Evolution & Comparative Genomics including phylogeny, phylogenomics, comparative genomics, genome rearrangements, orthology, paralogy, recombination, lateral gene transfer, genome variation, population genomics, comparative epigenomics, epidemiology, cancer evolution genomics, genome annotation.

The goal of the track is to foster exchange and collaborations between developers and users of computational methods in evolution and comparative genomics within the ISCB.

The track will feature a mix of proceedings talks and contributed talks from the submitted abstracts. In addition, there will be a poster session. Contributed talks are 10 or 20 minutes including Q&A. Talks can be on unpublished work or work published after January 1st 2020, and delivered by speakers at any career stage.

Grants to cover registration fees will be available for presenting students and postdocs. The procedure for application will be communicated to the relevant people in the talk/poster acceptance email.
