San Diego Bioinformatics Conference Focused on Drug Applications


SAN DIEGO, Calif.--The Third International Symposium on Bioinformatics: Tools for Drug Discovery and Design, sponsored by IBC USA Conferences, is scheduled here this week. The event will be immediately followed by a "postconference minisymposium" on Structural Bioinformatics: Drug Design from Genes and Proteins.

The main conference will focus on integrated drug discovery systems, examples of bioinformatics in drug discovery, hardware and software tools, in-house data generation and analysis, and data mining and interpretation. Speakers will include researchers working in the fields of genomics, bioinformatics, and drug discovery. There will also be five exhibitors showing the latest bioinformatics products: Incyte Pharma ceuticals, InforMax, NetGenics, Pangea Systems, and Paracel. The minisymposium will focus on case studies of structure identification and model analysis, predicting changes to protein-protein and protein-drug complexes, and determining approximate protein folds directly from gene sequences.
