The Mexican Computer Science Society invites proposals for the Biocomputation Workshop at the National Meeting on Computing (ENC 2014) to be held at Ensenada, Baja California, on October 7.
Biocomputation emerges as a multi- and transdisciplinary filed of research that brings together biology, physics, chemistry, computer science, and mathematics. On the one hand, bioinformatics is based on these disciplines to understand the role and interrelationship of biomolecules and thus explain the fenotype at the cellular and at the organism levels. It is a discipline that started with the creation of the first database of protein in the 60s and has gained a big boost after the development of massive sequencing technologies in the last decade.
Biomolecular computing, on the other hand, is based on the same disciplines but this time to propose models and computer systems having as hardware substrate the biomolecules. Biomolecular computing has a much more recent origin than bioinformatics and started with Adelman's experiments in 1995 to solve the Hamiltonian cycle problem. With this result the field has received tremendous attention from the scientific community due to its theoretical and technological challenges as well as for the potential applications the field might have in medicine and nanotechnology.
The Biocomputing workshop will bring together specialists in algorithms for bioinformatics and biomolecular computing and provide a forum to present the latest results from their research in these areas.
