GCB is meant as a platform for the German and European bioinformatics community. We are happy to announce that the GCB will have a session on virus bioinformatics.
The Second Annual Meeting of the European Virus Bioinformatics Center will be on 9th-10th April 2018 in Utrecht, Netherlands.
The conference will broadly focus on computational approaches in virology, and we welcome any contributions within this cross-disciplinary field. Sub-topics include (but are not limited to): virus discovery, diagnostics, (meta-)genomics, modelling, molecular structure, evolution, and viral ecology.
Registration is free of charge, and works on a first-come, first-serve basis.

VEME2018 Comprises three main modules: The Phylogenetic Inference module offers a theoretical background and hands-on experience in phylogenetic analysis for those who have little or no prior expertise. An Evolutionary Hypothesis Testing is targeting participants who are well familiar with alignments and phylogenetic trees, and would like to extend their expertise to likelihood and Bayesian inference in phylogenetics, coalescent and phylogeographic analyses (‘phylodynamics’). A Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) module will cover the more complex analysis of Next Generation Sequencing data. In addition, 6 dedicated half day modules cover topics such as Large Phylogenies, Transmission Clusters, Molecular Adaptation, Visualizing large phylogenies, Recombination and networks, and Virus Analysis Pipelines.
Abstract and application deadline is 31st of March 2018.
