Welcome to the 2nd Annual Midwest Symposium on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics website.

After a successful inaugural symposium last fall, this year's MSCBB will be held at the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The symposium promotes research in bioinformatics in the Midwestern United States, and provides an environment in which researchers can share their work and ideas with their peers. The MSCBB aims to bridge the gap between computational scientists and biologists, encouraging future collaborative work.
