Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are launching a topic, entitled “The 22nd International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB 2023): Translational Bioinformatics Transforming Life”, that seeks to publish original research, reviews and combined research–review papers. In recent years, we have witnessed a series of breakthroughs in our understanding of biology aided by high-throughput integrative approaches such as CRISPR, single-cell sequencing and metabolomics. These powerful methods are used to generate high-resolution transcriptomes, identify complex and rare cell populations, discover regulatory relationships between genes and assess cellular heterogeneity. The wealth of data generated by these technologies raises many challenges and has caused an exponential growth in the demand for tools for storing and managing data and software for the analysis, visualization, modelling and prediction of large data sets. The InCoB 2023 edition is committed to providing an opportunity for the scientific community to showcase their research and discuss this important topic through keynote talks, presentations, plenary sessions, poster sessions, workshops, software demos and panel discussions, among others.

This topic will comprise selected research works from the proceedings of the 22nd International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB2023; 12–15 November 2023, the flagship annual conference of the Asia & Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNET;, hosted by the Queensland University of Technology and the Translational Research Institute (TRI), Brisbane, Australia.

This issue highlights the current state of the art in bioinformatics applications and future prospects for improving informatics applications through integrated multi-omics approaches. We encourage submissions of manuscripts focusing on, but not limited to, current research, novel concepts, technologies and approaches in basic and advanced aspects of bioinformatics- and genomics-related research.
