RECOMB 2012 will take place in vibrant and beautiful Barcelona from 21 to 24 April 2012. There will be a strong focus on the computational challenges arising from the extraordinary developments in high throughput technologies. Participants will enjoy a full agenda of keynote talks, paper presentations, and poster sessions, with ample opportunities to participate in the city life of Barcelona. The meeting overlaps with Sant Jordi (Saint Georges), on April 23, the patron of Catalonia, and one of the most important civic holidays in the country.

RECOMB is a well-established scientific conference bridging the computational, mathematical, and biological sciences. The conference features keynote talks by preeminent scientists in the life sciences, together with presentations of refereed research papers in computational biology.

The conference series aims at attracting research contributions in all areas of computational molecular biology, including: molecular sequence analysis; recognition of genes and regulatory elements; molecular evolution; protein structure; structural genomics; analysis of gene expression; biological networks; sequencing and genotyping technologies; drug design; probabilistic and combinatorial algorithms; systems biology; computational proteomics; structural and functional genomics; information systems for computational biology and imaging.

The origins of the conference are in the mathematical and computational side of the field, and there remains a certain focus on computational advances. However, the effective applications of computational techniques to achieve biological innovation remains a central aspect of the conference.

The RECOMB Conference Series was founded in 1997 to provide a scientific forum for theoretical advances in computational biology and their applications in molecular biology and medicine. Previous RECOMB conferentes were held at:
