Biological Discovery Using Diverse High-Throughput Data
Organizer(s): David K. Gifford, Edward M. Rubin and Richard A. Young Date: March 30 - April 04, 2004
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
The meeting will explore the frontiers of biology and medicine from the perspective of genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes and other forms of global information. Its aim is to bring together investigators with interests in high-throughput interdisciplinary biomedical research. Diverse high-throughput technologies are providing information useful for understanding evolutionary processes, mapping regulatory networks, and developing new disease diagnostics and therapeutics. How these different high-throughput witnesses to cellular function can be merged to generate predictive models that improve our understanding of biology will be a key theme of the meeting. Upon completion of this conference, participants should be able to: -Identify the most exciting developments and challenges in genomics, proteomics and computational biology. -Discuss the emerging concepts and technologies that will be key to future high-throughput interdisciplinary biomedical research. -Learn how diverse high-throughput data can be optimally combined to develop predictive models of cellular and organism function. -Understand the successes and failures to date in applying high-throughput biology to normal and disease-related processes. -Discover how new technology and high-throughput information are generating new approaches to the development and use of diagnostics and therapeutics. -Explore and plan effective collaborations with biologists and computational experts who will be in attendance.
