The Asia-Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet) is a non-profit organization with the mission for advancement of bioinformatics in the region. This year, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of YARSI University and also to promote bioinformatics in the region, YARSI University, APBioNet and Perdana University are going to collaboratively organize the first International Symposium of Bioinformatics (InSyB 2017). This symposium would be the second collaboration between Perdana University and YARSI University following the MoU signed on 8 January 2016, and the first with APBioNet.
This symposium aims to spread awareness and development of bioinformatics in Asia Pacific, especially South East Asia Region. And also to strengthen the relationship between Perdana University Center of Bioinformatics (PU-CBi), Asia Pacific Bioinformatics Network (APBioNet), and YARSI University. The InSyB 2017 will serve as an intermediate milestone in preparing YARSI University to bid and host the International Conference on Bioinformatics (InCoB) in the near future, to be held for the first time in Indonesia.
InSyB 2017 takes the theme of “Bioinformatics for Precision Medicine” and will include session on High Performance Computation (HPC) and Big Data Analysis.
Students (diploma, undergraduate, graduate)
