Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SoIBio and 10th Anniversary of the Master in Bioinformatics Uruguay (2009 - 2019)


The Iberoamerican Society of Bioinformatics (SoIBio) is an international scientific society, founded in 2009 to connect several collaborative projects of various research groups from Iberoamerica working in the emerging field of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. SoIBio aims to promote research and development in the field of bioinformatics. Therefore, individuals, national societies or groups going to work in this field will be supported both academically and professionally. It is a platform to foster interaction and collaboration with other international societies and networks that work in the same field.

X International Conference on Bioinformatics - Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SoIBio and 10th Anniversary of the Master in Bioinformatics Uruguay. Montevideo - 28th - 30th October

The Master degree in Bioinformatics was created ten years ago by the Universidad de la República (Uruguayan public university) and the Programa de Desarrollo de Ciencias Básicas (PEDECIBA - Program for the Development of Basic Sciences). It is a multidisciplinary and multicentric career with more than 100 active students and more than 20 graduates. Its aim is to stimulate synergic research activities between diverse areas such as Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Informatics in Uruguay and in the Region. Besides, the initiative seeks to promote an emerging bioinformatics identity in the country, incorporating students and academics into the field. In October 2019, both the SOIBIO and the Master’s in Bioinformatics will celebrate in a joint meeting to commemorate our existence.

Special Issue of Biomolecules Journal

Anyone who wants to propose an ARTICLE for the special issue of Biomolecules, must first send an ABSTRACT to soibiosec@fq.edu.uy

BIOMOLECULES_Conference-SoiBio+10_SI_Flyer.png

CALL for PAPERS to be published in Biomolecules associated to scientific communications to #SoIBio+10 Conference

ALL registered participants in the #SoIBio+10 Conference (28-30.October.2019, Montevideo, UR) can propose publishing a full research PAPER to a Special Issue of Biomolecules.

A selection of about 12 full articles will be done to be published in the journal Biomolecules (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biomolecules), in the Special Issue called "Bioinformatics for Precision Biomolecular Data Mining: progress in Latin America - Selected Papers from the X International Conference on Bioinformatics #SoIBio+10". This special issue will be included in the section of this Journal: "Bioinformatics and Systems Biology".

PLEASE, SUBMIT your PAPER according to the following conditions and dates:

1.– From 30.August to 20.September. ARTICLE PROPOSAL --- The authors should send to this address (jrivas@usal.es or tapia@cifasis-conicet.gov.ar) a simple draft PROPOSING an ARTICLE in a .DOC file with a maximum 3 pages including these sections: TITLE, AUTHORS, ABSTRACT [max. 400 words], RESULTS brief description [max. 1000 words], Statement of MAIN CONTRIBUTION [100 words], some REFERENCES. This PROPOSAL should be correlated with a communication that the authors also send to #SoIBio+10 Conference (https://sites.google.com/view/soibio19/).

2.– From 20.September to 30.September. ARTICLE PRE-SELECTION --- ADMISSION or NOT of the article proposed to be submitted as a full paper to Biomolecules.

3.– From 30.September to 30.October. FULL PAPER SUBMISSION in the website of the Journal ("click here to go to the submission form") --- Time for the authors for preparation and submission of the FULL PAPER following the regular format asked by Biomolecules (see Submission Guidelines)

4.– From 31.October to 10.December. PEER REVIEW --- Time for full review of each submitted article by at least two independent reviewers. The revision of the papers will be managed by the Special Editors assigned to this Biomolecules Special Issue. At the end of this process, the Editors will indicate to the authors which are the final ACCEPTED ARTICLES. (Written reviews and answers will be needed along all this process).

5.– From 11.December to 31.December. SUBMISSION FOR PUBLICATION --- Submission the final article, revised and corrected. The manuscripts should be prepared for publication following Biomolecules Special Issue Submission Guidelines.
