General Info

The CIGB's Direction of Biomedical Research invites you to attend the VII International Meeting on Bioinformatics and OMICs: OMICs 2017

As part of OMICs 2017 meeting we are organizing the followed simposia:

           •  "Novel Technological Platform for Genomic Discovery"

•  "Genomic in diseases and drug discovery"

•  "Integrative Big Data Analysis

Also the OMICs17 Organizing Committee are organizing the workshop: "Novel Technological Platform for Genomic Discovery"

Topics of interest:

Simposia: "Novel Technological Platform for Genomic Discovery",  "Genomics in disease and drug discovery", "Integrative Big Data Analysis"

New advances in:

-Liquid Biopsy & Circulating Nucleic Acids
–Molecular Diagnostics
– Integrative Big Data Analysis
– Biomarker Signatures
– Non-coding RNAs — microRNA, isomiRs, small RNAs, long non-coding RNAs
– MicroGenomics & Single-Cells Diagnostics
– Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)
– MIQE & QM & Standardisation Strategies in Molecular Diagnostics


Workshop: “OMICS & Structural Biology of viral infections: tightening the control of re-emerging infectious diseases”  

With special emphasis in Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya viruses

Topics of interest:

o    Virion structure, 3D structure of viral proteins, membrane fusion and inhibitors, mechanism of antibody neutralization, cell receptors, virus entry, drug design, inhibition of non-structural proteins

o    Technologies for OMICS data generation.

o   Bioinformatics and statistical methods for genomic and proteomic research

o   Integrative OMICS and Big data analysis.

o  System Biology based bioinformatics software development: Network Biology, Gene-protein-drug-diseases networks.

o   Molecular modeling and computational simulations

o   Analysis of protein interaction networks.

o   Prediction of protein:protein interactions


Please note that registration for OMICS 2017 will also grant unrestricted access to the sessions of the First Symposium on Viral Infectious Diseases, which will be taking place in the same conference center.  


OMICS 2017 will be held from October 28th to October 31st,  2017 at the Meliá Marina Varadero hotel, Cuba.
