Genome Technology s Conference and Events Calendar: May 9, 2005

NEW YORK, May 9 (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 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.


May 13: CONFERENCE. The annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, entitled "Advancing the Science of Clinical Oncology," will be held at the OrangeCountyConvention Centerin Orlando.


May 14: CONFERENCE. Held in the Kresge Auditorium at MIT in CambridgeRECOMB 2005, otherwise known the ninth annual international conference on Research in Computational Biology, will take place May 14-17.


May 16: USER GROUP. The Oracle Life Sciences User Group, an independently-run organization, will hold a meeting May 16-17 in conjunction with IDG's Bio-IT World conference. The OLSUG meeting will feature multiple content tracks and presentations, workshops, tutorials and roundtable discussions.


May 16: CONFERENCE. CHI's RNAi for Pathway Analysis conference in Bostonwill include presentations on combining RNAi with chemical genomics and phenotyping approaches to RNAi screening.


May 17: CONFERENCE. IDG's Bio-IT World Conference and Expo in Bostonwill feature keynote speeches by Craig Venter and Larry Lesko of FDA.

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.
