Genome Evolution and Structural Variation: Next Steps in Natural Human Genetic Variation

Genome Evolution and Structural Variation: Next Steps in Natural Human Genetic Variation

November 28, 2007
The Sheraton Seattle Hotel
Seattle, Washington, USA

This one day idea-generating meeting will draw on Seattle’s research community, and invited speakers from the fields of human genetic variation and evolution. Discussion will focus on the overall question of the next steps in characterizing human genetic variation and genome evolution. Speakers will focus on challenges related to their topic, such as incorporating structural variation detection into current technologies, or within current large-scale projects to characterize natural genetic variation.

“Pushing the limits”: 2007 Congress of the Swiss Proteomics Society

“Pushing the limits”: 2007 Congress of the Swiss Proteomics Society

To be held at the “Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne, Lausanne, Switzerland”
December 3rd to 5th 2007.

The SPS07 congress will focus on the present limitations in the field of proteomics, and in particular on how can we go beyond the limits.

Presentations will cover areas such as:

Post-translational modifications
Membrane proteomics
In vivo proteomics
Biomarkers discovery
Bioinformatics and statistics

Presentations by an international panel of speakers will address these and other important issues, in order to give a clear picture of the directions of proteomics research in which we can push the limits.

Protein Expression – Optimizing Outcomes for Maximum Efficiency

Protein Expression

Cambridge Healthtech Institutes’ Eleventh Annual Event

Conference Dates: January 7-9, 2008

Hotel Del Coronado
San Diego, CA

The expression of proteins for characterization, therapeutics, and diagnostics continues to be a challenging and complex task, requiring much time and untold expense. However, new data emerges every day which provides unique insights into methods for producing these proteins. This conference will present the most up-to-date research in protein-expression science and give valuable insights into the new methods and technologies which will make achieving ideal protein expression an obtainable goal.


December 6 – 9, 2007

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724-2213
Phone (516) 367-8346
Fax: (516) 367-8845

You are cordially invited to participate in the fifth meeting on Rat Genomics & Models, which will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin with dinner and the first session on the evening of Thursday, December 6, and will conclude with lunch on Sunday, December 9, 2007. We are looking forward to a broad-based meeting, and abstracts are welcomed on all scientific topics related to rat genetics, genomics and physiology.

6th Workshop: Statistical methods for post-genomic data

6th Workshop: Statistical methods for post-genomic data

January, 31st and February, 1st, 2008

Agrocampus Rennes
65 rue de Saint-Brieuc
CS 84215 – 35042 Rennes cedex

This workshop will focus on statistical methods dedicated to post-genomic data such as transcriptome, proteome… High flow experimental methods aim at identifying the genes functions and their links with a biological process. Statistics and mathematics are useful for providing performant methods for the differential analysis of micro-array data and electrophoresis images and for modelling networks using multiple genomic data. The subjects of interest are the following: mixing models, multiple testing, estimation and variables selection, Bayesian methods, random effects models, kernels methods, classification (supervised or not), change point estimation …

XVth World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics (WCPG)

XVth World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics (WCPG)
Bridging Genes to Behavior in the Era of the Genome

October 7-10, 2007
New York City
The Marriott Marquis, Times Square

This year a 4 day program will be focused on new progress in discovering candidate genes and genetic
mechanisms for all major uniquely human neuropsychiatric disorders and will include topics related to the mapping of the genetic control of normal and abnormal brain plasticity during early development,
childhood, adolescence, adulthood and aging.

Genomes 2008

Genomes 2008
Functional Genomics of Microorganisms

April 8-11, 2008
Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

Genomes 2008 is of the latest in a series of meetings including Genomes 2000 (Institut Pasteur, Paris), Genomes 2004 (Hinxton, Cambridge, UK), Microbial Genomes 2007 (Hinxton, Cambridge, UK), and the ASM-TIGR Microbial Genome Conferences (USA).

The emphasis of the meeting will be comparative analyses of pathogenic and environmental microbes, functional genomics, computational genomics and systems biology in the light of the new technological developments. Genomics has also dramatically changed studies concerning the interaction of microorganism s with their environment or, for pathogens, symbionts or commensals, their host. The newest results in this field will also be discussed.

International Congress of Genetics 2008

International Congress of Genetics 2008

Berlin, Germany
July 12-17, 2008

The field of genetics continues to witness impressive advances in understanding the hereditary basis of the structure, function and evolution of living systems. The next International Congress of Genetics, to be held in Berlin, Germany, July 12-17, 2008, will address the latest developments in this exciting frontier of science.

Impressive progress has already been made in the bioinformatic and mathematic integration of genomic data. Computational analyses of genomic data and the simulation of models of biological systems are yielding the new discipline of computational genetics as well as the first steps toward a synthetic biology.

We welcome you heartily to join us at the XX International Congress of Genetics, Berlin, 2008, to review with us the latest and exciting advances in modern genetics.
