PGS , hosted by Beijing Genomics Institute, Chinese Academy of Science, is the most influential biyearly symposium in the genomics research in China. The purpose of this symposium is to foster international scientific exchange among academic, government and industry research groups in China, U.S. and around the world, as well as to provide critical perspectives on the current status and future of genomics research and its application. Its 1st round was successfully held in 2004, in Beijing, and was praised as " well-programed, well-selected topics and speakers". PGS 2006 will focus on the fantastic influence of Genomics on medicine and human healthcare, main topics including:

- Genomics and proteomics approaches to drug discovery and development

- Genomics and proteomics applications in clinical research and diagnostics

- Pharmacogenomics

- RNA processing in health and disease

- RNAi for target validation

- Cancer Genomics and Proteomics

- Systems Biology

- Genome and Protein Biomarkers
