Bioinformatics & Systems Biology Conference 2020


On April 1st the Dutch government extended the COVID-19 measurements until April 28th. This means that we will no longer be able to organise the BioSB 2020 conference on April 21 and 22.

We are working hard on finding an alternative date for the BioSB 2020 conference sometime later this year and hope you will join us then!

We will keep you informed through our website and mailings.



This year's conference will be co-organised by the BioSB research school and the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center.

The BioSB 2020 conference discusses the latest developments in bioinformatics, systems and computational biology and interrelated disciplines, and their wide-ranging applications in life sciences & health, agriculture, food & nutrition. 

The conference will feature keynote lectures, parallel sessions featuring selected, highlight and invited talks, breakout sessions, poster & demo sessions, network breaks and a conference dinner and social event

The conference will also offer a track organised by ELIXIR Netherlands.
