The German Conference on Bioinformatics (GCB) is an annual, international conference devoted to all areas of bioinformatics. Recent meetings attracted a multinational audience with 250 – 300 participants each year. The meeting is open to all fields of bioinformatics and is meant as a platform for the German and European bioinformatics community.
The upcoming GCB will be chaired by Knut Reinert, Professor at the Institute for Bioinformatics at Freie Universität Berlin. It will focus on computation in the academic natural sciences and aims to showcase applications and opportunities beyond. Spearheading scientists will be presenting along with young researchers and industry representatives.
To jointly promote and direct the development of the field of Bioinformatics, the associations GI (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V.), DECHEMA (Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e.V.), GBM (Gesellschaft für Biochemie und Molekularbiologie e.V.) and GDCh (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker e.V.) founded the expert group for bioinformatics (Fachgruppe Bioinformatik) in September 2014. Since then the group unites interests of academia and industry in the field. The GCB is the conference of FaBI.
