The Top Five Bioinformatics Conferences of 2013

Bioinformatics is the study of how computer technology might be used to manage biological information. Exciting examples include analyzing genetic sequences to invent a new, life-saving drug and determining the sequence of the entire human genome. Bioinformatics conferences help biologists around the world touch base, communicating the latest strides in the field to each other. Check out these top five bioinformatics conferences, which will be held in the U.S. in 2013.
