Bioinformatics is meant as a multi-disciplinary science for the study of biological systems at the molecular and cellular level by using informatics and computational methods and models.
Main goals of the associations are the study, development and spreading of Bioinformatics in a scientific, academic, technological and industrial environment.
Welcome to the BITS Web Site!
After carefully evaluating the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic the BITS steering committee have made the decision to postpone the BITS 2020 Congress, originally scheduled for July 13-26, 2020 in Verona.
The Congress will now take place on the new dates 6th-9th July 2021 at the same venue in Verona..
In this unique situation, the scientific community is tackling the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide with an effort never seen before. The BITS steering committee have decided to help the community sharing all the research activities related to the COVID-19 diffusion that the BITS members are going on.
A dedicated page to collected these initiatives is now active.
