Welcome to the official website of the 2017 5th International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (ICBCB 2017). The conference will be held in Hong Kong during January 6-8, 2017. The aim objective of ICBCB 2017 is to present the latest research and results of scientists (preferred students, PhD Students, and post-doc scientist) related to Bioinformatics and Computational Biology topics. This conference provides opportunities for the different areas delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration. We hope that the conference results constituted significant contribution to the knowledge in these up to date scientific field.
