The Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics (PRIB) meeting was established in 2006
under the auspices of the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) to create a focus for the development and application of pattern recognition techniques in the biological domain. PRIB’s aim to explore the full spectrum of pattern recognition application was reflected in the breadth of techniques represented in this year’s submissions and in this book. These range from image analysis for biomedical data to systems biology.

We were fortunate to have invited speakers of the highest calibre delivering keynotes at the conference. These were Pierre Baldi (UC Irvine), Alvis Brazma (EMBL-EBI), GunnarR¨atsch (MPI T¨ubingen) andMichaelUnser (EPFL).We acknowledge support of the EUFP7 Network of Excellence PASCAL2 for partially funding the invited speakers. Immediately prior to the conference, we hosted half day of tutorial lectures, while a special session on “Machine Learning for Integrative Genomics” was held immediately after the main conference. During the conference, a poster session was held with further

We would like once again to thank all the authors for the high quality of submissions, as well as Yorkshire South and the University of Sheffield for providing logistical help in organizing the conference. Finally, we would like to thank Springer for their help in assembling this proceedings volume and for the continued support of PRIB.
