Genome Technology s Conference and Events Calendar: Apr 18, 2005

NEW YORK, April 18 (GenomeWeb News) - Following is a list of conferences and other events scheduled to take place over the next two weeks. For a complete list of events, read Genome Technology, a GenomeWeb News sister publication.


April 18 CONFERENCE. The 10th annual Human Genome Meeting, subtitled "From Genome to Health," will be held in Kyoto, Japan. The conference touches on population genomics, medical genomics, functional genomics, epigenetics and the genome, cancer genomics, and the functional transcriptome, among other topics.



April 19 CONFERENCE. The 12th annual Molecular Medicine Tri-Conference, in San Francisco, is divided into five tracks: pathway analysis, R&D strategies, mastering medicinal chemistry, integrative preclinical development, and molecular diagnostics.



April 21 CONFERENCE. At the NIH 3rd Symposium on the Functional Genomics of Critical Illness and Injury, held in Bethesda, program topics include genomic, transcriptomic, and metabolomic analysis; host-pathogen responses; and the ethical, legal, and societal implications of genomic research.



April 24 CONFERENCE. Organized by the Institute for Systems Biology, the Computational Challenges in Systems Biology conference will be held at ISB in Seattle. Nathan Myhrvold will give the keynote address.



April 25 CONFERENCE. The International Symposium on Genomics-based Plant Germplasm Research, held in Beijing, will touch on genomic diversity and core collections, plant germplasm as a resource for gene discovery, plant germplasm as a resource for varietal enhancement, and bioinformatics and plant germplasm.



April 26 CONFERENCE. Pharma-IT at INTERPHEX 2005, held at the JavitsConvention Center in New York, will feature IT solutions to support faster, more powerful, and more efficient drug manufacturing.

The Scan

LINE-1 Linked to Premature Aging Conditions

Researchers report in Science Translational Medicine that the accumulation of LINE-1 RNA contributes to premature aging conditions and that symptoms can be improved by targeting them.

Team Presents Cattle Genotype-Tissue Expression Atlas

Using RNA sequences representing thousands of cattle samples, researchers looked at relationships between cattle genotype and tissue expression in Nature Genetics.

Researchers Map Recombination in Khoe-San Population

With whole-genome sequences for dozens of individuals from the Nama population, researchers saw in Genome Biology fine-scale recombination patterns that clustered outside of other populations.

Myotonic Dystrophy Repeat Detected in Family Genome Sequencing Analysis

While sequencing individuals from a multi-generation family, researchers identified a myotonic dystrophy type 2-related short tandem repeat in the European Journal of Human Genetics.
