The 2008 International Conference on Bioinformatics & Computational Biology (BIOCOMP’08)

The 2008 International Conference on Bioinformatics & Computational Biology (BIOCOMP’08)

July 14-17, 2008
Las Vegas, Nevada USA)

WORLDCOMP’08 is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. Many of the joint conferences in WORLDCOMP are the premier conferences for presentation of advances in their respective fields (for the complete list of the

XXIV International Congress – Cytometry in the Age of Systems Biology

XXIV International Congress – Cytometry in the Age of Systems Biology

International Society for Analytical Cytology (ISAC)

May 17-21, 2008
Budapest Sportarena
Budapest, Hungary

The 2008 Congress will highlight the most important current hardware and software advances in all areas of cytometry, including measurements of properties of whole cells (whether in flow or on a substrate) and analysis of subcellular patterns (whether for adherent cells or cells in suspension). A major emphasis will be placed on the critical role cytometry is playing in the growing field of systems biology, which seeks a comprehensive understanding of the behavior of biological processes at all levels.

A highlight of the Congresses is the impressive set of exhibitions by both new and established companies. Attendees can learn first-hand about the most recent instruments and software. The atmosphere at the meeting is very conducive to discussions among participants and facilitates cross-fertilization between flow and imaging approaches to cell analysis. The Congress also presents a number of formal educational opportunities, including short courses, tutorials and workshops.

XX International Congress of Genetics

XX International Congress of Genetics
Genetics – Understanding Living Systems

July 12-17, 2008

International Congress Centrum (ICC)
Berlin, Germany

Genomics, the study of complete genomes, has revolutionized genetic research. Complete and annotated genome sequences and comprehensive maps of polymorphism are available for many model organisms, including the genomes of man and our closest relative, the chimpanzee. Genome architectures and structure-function relationships of complex macromolecular assemblies are being elucidated in ever greater depth. Genome-wide transcriptome and proteome analyses are widely available. Powerful technologies are at hand to generate both heritable and transient genetic perturbations. Importantly, comparative genomics provides deep insights into evolutionary mechanisms underlying genetic variation, adaptation and speciation. Genomic polymorphisms among humans reveal a rich picture of our recent evolutionary history as well as the genetic, epigenetic and environmental contributions to disease risk.

Natural Genetic Engineering and Natural Genome Editing

Natural Genetic Engineering and Natural Genome Editing Symposium

July 3-6, 2008
Salzburg, Austria

This symposium assembles experts from different fields to discuss a new understanding of code- generating and genome-formatting factors based on the knowledge of key features of natural genetic engineering and on the evolutionary role of viruses. This should lead to new insights in evolution, development, health and disease and yield an appropriate framework to examine key processes of natural-genome-editing in general and in detail.

The symposium will be limited to 50 participants to guarantee a high throughput of informational and discourse dynamics.

American College of Medical Genetics – 15th Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting

American College of Medical Genetics – 15th Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting

March 12-16, 2008
Phoenix, Arizona
Phoenix Convention Center & Hyatt Regency Phoenix

The ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting is relevant to professionals in medical and clinical genetics who are providing comprehensive diagnostic, management and genetic counseling services for patients with, or at risk for, genetically influenced health problems; laboratory directors and technicians providing genetic testing; researchers involved in the discovery of genetic disorders and treatments; and all other healthcare and public health professionals with an interest in the rapidly evolving field of medical genetics and its integration into healthcare. The Program Committee has developed an exceptional program that includes plenary and invited sessions presented by world-renowned physicians, scientists and genetic counselors, along with platform and poster presentations of selected submitted abstracts, and an exhibit hall featuring products and services utilized by genetics professionals in their practice and continuing education.

RNAi2008 – Functions and Applications of Non-coding RNAs

Third Annual Oxford RNAi Conference

RNAi2008 – Functions and Applications of Non-coding RNAs

13-14 March 2008, St. Anne’s College, Osford, UK

The Third Annual Oxford RNAi Conference, RNAi2008, will address most aspects of biology and application of RNA interference. The conference is aimed at bringing together leading experts in the field from both academia and industry, postdoctoral scientists, graduate research students and research managers. Thus this event provides an excellent opportunity to discover the latest research directions and thinking in this fast moving field in academic and commercial settings, as well as to develop new collaborative links.

Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities

Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF)

Enabling Technologies in the Life Sciences

February 9-12, 2008

Salt Palace Convention Center
Salt Lake City, Utah

In addition to our usual emphasis on genomics and proteomics we have expanded our focus to include related technology such as flow cytometry, microscopy and imaging, laser capture micro dissection, lipidomics, ion mobility mass spectrometry and more.

The ABRF Annual Meeting was recently named one of the “Big Ten Conferences” and rates the Most Recommended Meeting for Technology & Instrumentation” by the readers of Genome Technology
