About AB3C

The Brazilian Association of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (AB3C) is a scientific society funded in July 12th 2004. Since its creation, AB3C has been responsible for the annual conference entitled “X-Meeting”, which is the main Bioinformatics and Computation Biology event in Brazil. This year its 12th edition will be held in Belo Horizonte.

Bioinformatics is a strategic research subject for Brazil and Latin America and, therefore, it is also considered as a key factor to the development of Science, Technology and Economy. The X-Meeting is a Brazilian conference with international reach, which has an average of 400 participants. The conference is an excellent opportunity for students, researchers and companies to interact and to strengthen scientific collaborations. AB3C is a pioneer society in Bioinformatics field in Brazil and we have a tradition of organizing productive meetings in which high-level scientific works are presented.
