The International Symposium on Bioinformatics (InSyb 2018) went off to a great start today at Perdana University. Jointly organised by MyBioInfoNet and Perdana University, with support from APBioNet, the symposium aims to spread awareness and development of bioinformatics in the Asia Pacific region.
Close to 100 participants from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and India are attending the symposium. It was officiated today by the President of APBioNet, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mohammad Asif Khan.
Professor N. Srinivasan from the Indian Institute of Science delivered the keynote speech on multi-domain proteins, a study that will advance breakthroughs in treatments for diseases such as cancer.
The symposium also witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between APBioNet and MyBioInfoNet. The latter was launched recently to “serve as a networking platform for Malaysians or non-Malaysians, within or outside Malaysia, with interest in growing bioinformatics in the country”.
InSyB2018 will be ongoing until tomorrow, 21st Dec. For more info on MyBioInfoNet and the Symposium, visit their website.
