Physical, Computational and Data-driven Biology of Proteins and Nucleic Acids Conference (PCDB2020)

With the rapid advancement in high-throughput omic techniques, big data plays an increasingly important role in driving discovery and translational development in every field of biology. This era of big data calls for more concerted computational and experimental approaches to address fundamental and practical biological problems from a physical point of view.

The conference on “Physical, Computational and Data-driven Biology of Proteins and Nucleic Acids” (PCDB2020) hopes to provide a forum for promoting integrated computational and experimental studies, enhancing the communications between theoretical, computational, and experimental biologists, and nurturing cross-disciplinary collaborations.
