Summary of Meeting:
Tremendous strides have been made in the structural analysis of large genomes, such that, the majority of the human genomic sequence will be completed by the year 2000. In parallel, advances in genetics have elucidated the molecular features of several mendelian traits and diseases, provided insight into disease mechanisms, and clarified how evolution has shaped the structure and function of specific genes. The greatest challenge now is to use the genomic sequence to gain an understanding of how the features of complex genetic systems in humans are encoded within the genome. More generally, how will we understand function from sequence? The purpose of the proposed meeting is to bring together key investigators in genomic technologies and genetics, from both the academic and industrial sectors, to identify the major questions and formulate new approaches for elucidating human genetics in the future.
