The 6th International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics (ISNB 2009)
is scheduled on 22 and 23 April 2009 and is likely to continue its success
from previous years in bringing different disciplines together to discuss
ongoing research in bioinformatics and biology of networks. The focus of
6th International Symposium on Networks in Bioinformatics will be on
biological networks such as metabolic networks, signal transduction pathways and
genetic regulatory networks. This year we also aim to include topics like
modeling of cells, tissues, gene regulation and biomineralisation. We also 
want to invite researchers working on gene networks in plants (e.g. Arabidopsis), 
model organisms such as Drosophila and organisms with a relatively simple and
basal body plan such as sponges and scleractinian corals.
Understanding of these networks is crucial for understanding molecular and
cellular processes in the organism or system under study. This field is
subject of lively research and both experimental and computational
approaches are used to elucidate the biological networks. The
bioinformatics of biological networks involves a broad range of research
and approaches. Research includes the identification of regulatory
elements in DNA, developmental biology, genome context analysis, modelling
and simulation of pathways, reconstruction of pathways from experimental
data, visualization of pathways, and the representation of pathways in
database, graphs and mark-up languages.
