16th International Symposium
on Bioinformatics Research
and Applications
Moscow Russia December 1-4


Dear Participants!

After careful consideration of the most recent information provided about the coronavirus (COVID-19) by the World Health Organization and in order to prevent the risk of its spread and protect the participants and guests of the event, we have rescheduled ISBRA to December 1-4, 2020. 

We apologize for any inconvenience caused!

With Best Regards,
Organizing Committee

The International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications (ISBRA) provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results among researchers, developers, and practitioners working on all aspects of bioinformatics and computational biology and their applications.
