    Bioinformatics: Past, Present, and Future

    A symposium marking the retirement of Prof. Edward Trifonov

    Bioinformatics combines approaches from exact sciences to solve problems of biological origin. Bioinformatics captures an increasingly growing part in research and industry, especially in light of recent groundbreaking advancements in DNA sequencing. The University of Haifa has posited Bioinformatics as one of its favorite future directions. In recent years, several new and promising researchers have joined the existing faculty in Bioinformatics. Due to the retirement of our member, Prof. Edward Trifonov, one of the pioneer bioinformaticians, we will conduct a symposium with world leading scientists from Israel and abroad, from a wide spectrum of Bioinformatics, such as Evolutionary Genomics, Systems Biology, Neuro-informatics, and more.
