The Second International Conference on Algebraic Biology, AB'07, is an international forum to promote discussion and interaction between researchers who intend to apply symbolic computation -- computer algebra and computational logic -- to various issues in biology.
The conference covers all aspects of applications of algebraic and logic methods in biology, addressing
molecular sequence analysis
molecular structure analysis
molecular evolution
gene regulation
gene expression
gene ontology
network Inference
mathematical modeling
model identification
system analysis and design
system verification
synthetic biological systems
and other problems in biology with symbolic methods including, but not restricted to:
polynomial methods
group theoretical methods
rewriting methods
automated reasoning methods
automata methods
formal language methods
combinatoric methods
symbolic-numeric algorithms (sequential, parallel, distributed, grid processing)
Contributions that present recent results including significant work-in-progress, and identify and explore new directions of research are welcome.
The previous event, AB'05, First International Conference on Algebraic Biology was held in November 28-30, 2005 in Tokyo, Japan.
