BioC 2018 invites abstracts on research to be presented as a poster or short oral presentations (10 minutes including questions) to the full conference. Please submit an abstract of up to 300 words, which will be peer-reviewed by the conference committee for selection in the conference programme. Include links to software where relevant.
