The sixth International Conference on Intelligent Biology and Medicine (ICIBM) took place in Los Angeles, California, USA on June 10-12, 2018. This conference featured eleven regular scientific sessions, four tutorials, one poster session, four keynote talks, and four eminent scholar talks. The scientific program covered a wide range of topics from bench to bedside, including 3D Genome Organization, reconstruction of large scale evolution of genomes and gene functions, artificial intelligence in biological and biomedical fields, and precision medicine. Both method development and application in genomic research continued to be a main component in the conference, including studies on genetic variants, regulation of transcription, genetic-epigenetic interaction at both single cell and tissue level and artificial intelligence. Here, we write a summary of the conference and also briefly introduce the four high quality papers selected to be published in BMC Genomics that cover novel methodology development or innovative data analysis.
