The accepted papers of ISMB 2014 is available as proceedings in a special issue of Bioinformatics. The 22nd annual meeting of Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology (ISMB), will take place in Boston, MA, July 11–15, 2014.
If you are a computational biologist/bioinformatician and could not make it to this year’s ISMB, you can access all the papers well in advance. The ISMB 2014 accepted papers are freely available at the special Bioinformatics issue
The proceedings contain 37 accepted papers selected from 191 submissions in 13 research areas. Given the interest in high-throughput sequencing and its applications, it is not surprising that over 50% of the submitted papers were in the research areas like, Gene Regulation and Transcriptomics, RNA Bioinformatics, Sequence Analysis, and Population Genomics.
Here is a few selected ISMB 2014 papers on sequencing data/methods.

And this may be the right time for the Bioinformatics journal to promote ISMB 2014 proceedings instead of ISMB 2012 proceedings :)
