CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Program and Organizing Committees have honor to announce the traditional biennial event–The Fourth International Conference on Bioinformatics of Genome Regulation and Structure (BGRS’2004)—to be held on July 25–30, 2004, in Akademgorodok, Novosibirsk, Russia.
Do put it in your diaries, please!
BGRS’2004 is a multidisciplinary conference, and we are pleased to invite scientists with an interest in bioinformatics, mathematical, theoretical, or computational biology to attend the meeting.
Its scope includes development and application of advanced methods of computational and theoretical analysis to structure–function genome organization, proteomics, and evolutionary and system biology. The event addresses the latest research in these fields, and will be a great opportunity for attendees to showcase their works.
BGRS’2004 provides a general forum for disseminating and facilitating the latest developments in bioinformatics in molecular biology, and we also invite scientists participating in experimental research and using theoretical and/or computational methods in their practice and/or researchers supported by INTAS grants to come. We will be delighted to see industry representatives from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies as BGRS’2004 conferees, too.
BGRS’2004 topics of interest include:
· COMPUTATIONAL STRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS
Large-scale genome analysis and comparison; genome functional annotation, gene finding and prediction; genome knowledge bases and ontologies; mobile genetic elements and repeated DNA sequences, DNA nucleosomal organization. Regulatory genomic sequences: databases and knowledge bases, computer analysis, modeling and simulation, comparative genomics of regulatory regions; gene expression (models of transcription, splicing, and translation control);
· COMPUTATIONAL STRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL PROTEOMICS
RNA structure–function organization (analysis and prediction); protein structure and function analysis, modeling, and prediction; classification of folds and structural motifs in proteins; functional sites and active centers in 3D protein structure (recognition and modeling of function); large-scale analysis of proteomes and protein-protein interactions;
· COMPUTATIONAL SYSTEM BIOLOGY
Gene networks, regulatory networks, signal transduction pathways, metabolic pathways, gene expression pathways (databases and knowledge bases, computer analysis, modeling, and simulation); In silico reconstruction of gene networks by computational analysis of microarray data; description and modeling of intracellular dynamics; intercellular communication modeling; virtual cell; networks and development; systems biology and biotechnology, epigenetics;
· COMPUTATIONAL EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY
Genetic variation (SNPs, haplotypes, etc.); large scale genome rearrangements; genome polymorphism; molecular evolution, regulatory systems and metabolic pathways; comparative genomics; evolution of protein structure and function; phylogenetic trees reconstruction; horizontal transmission of genetic information;
· METHODS TO ANALYZE AND SIMULATE BIOMOLECULAR SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES
Integrating genetic, functional, and molecular pathways with genetic networks from complex genetic trait analysis; interactive links between bioinformatics and experimental research on functional genomics (gene expression array analysis and other new technologies and methods); data warehousing, knowledge discovery, data mining, and machine learning in genomics and proteomics; superlarge computer systems in molecular biology and molecular genetics, high performance computing in functional and structural genomics and proteomics; data management methods and systems; database integration; data visualization; string and graph algorithms; stochastic modeling;
· BIOINFORMATICS AND EDUCATION
As at previous conferences, the BGRS’2004 program will be composed of plenary lectures, oral reports, specialized poster sessions, computer demonstrations, software demonstrations, round table discussions, and tutorials.
International Program Committee is co-chaired by
Nikolay Kolchanov (Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Novosibirsk, Russia) and Ralf Hofestaedt (University of Bielefeld, Germany).
Local Organizing Committee is chaired by Dagmara Furman (Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Novosibirsk, Russia).
