NEW YORK, May 2 (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.


May 2 DEADLINE: HUPO Annual World Congress abstract submissions are due.


May 4 CONFERENCE. Organized by Cambridge Healthtech Institute, the Microarrays in Medicine conference at the World Trade Center in Boston will include talks by George Church of Harvard Medical School, Ellen Feigal of TGen, and Stacey Gabriel of the Broad Institute.


May 5 DEADLINE. Proposals due for NIEHS proteomic analysis RFP seeking labs to do biomarker discovery "in subcellular tissue fractions of target tissues or accessible biological fluids."


May 8 CONFERENCE. One hundred thirty companies are slated to attend Biotech 2005: NSTI Nanotechnology Conference and Trade Show, to be held in Anaheim. The conference is managed by the Nano Science and Technology Institute.


May 11 CONFERENCE. The Biology of Genomes meeting will be held at ColdSpringHarborMay 11-15. Kelly Frazer of Perlegen Sciences, Thomas Hudson of McGillUniversity, Svante Pääbo of the Max-Planck-Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and Richard Wilson of WashingtonUniversityare helping to organize the 18th annual meeting.


May 12 DEADLINE. Proposals due for the "Neuroscience Information Framework" grant opportunity through the National Institute on Drug Abuse. This program operates as part of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research, a multi-institute framework to support research on the nervous system.

The Scan

Genome Sequences Reveal Range Mutations in Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Researchers in Nature Genetics detect somatic mutation variation across iPSCs generated from blood or skin fibroblast cell sources, along with selection for BCOR gene mutations.

Researchers Reprogram Plant Roots With Synthetic Genetic Circuit Strategy

Root gene expression was altered with the help of genetic circuits built around a series of synthetic transcriptional regulators in the Nicotiana benthamiana plant in a Science paper.

Infectious Disease Tracking Study Compares Genome Sequencing Approaches

Researchers in BMC Genomics see advantages for capture-based Illumina sequencing and amplicon-based sequencing on the Nanopore instrument, depending on the situation or samples available.

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.
