The “ISCB-Africa ASBCB Joint Conference on Bioinformatics of Infectious Diseases: Pathogens, Hosts and Vectors” will provide a forum for discussion, fostering of new collaborations and the development of this nascent field in Africa, promoting more effective networking and novel research initiatives on the continent. It is expected that there will be an important presence of EMBnet key members and people from African EMBnet nodes. A key result will be to improve regional training as a direct consequence of sharing training techniques and material relevant to hosts, pathogens and diseases. The meeting will also facilitate links between young and emerging scientists from Africa, established leading African scientists and distinguished colleagues from the international community. The conference will be followed by two days of workshops for students and trainers, for which we have received commitment from several leading African, European and American researchers to serve as organizers and presenters.
