The "Virtual Conference on Genomics and Bioinformatics" is an advanced
environment for the exchange and discussion of information related to
innovations of the post-genomic era. Since genomic research has led to an
explosive rate of data accumulation and to a shift in the way biological
research is conducted, the conference features high profile researchers and
educators working actively in the development of new applications in the
areas of genomics and bioinformatics. While genomic technologies offer an
enormous scientific potential to understand genome functions, structure and
interaction, the increasing amount of data generated present new challenges
for biologists, sociologists, mathematicians, computer scientists and
biological modelers. Therefore the main goals of the Virtual Conference in
Genomics and Bioinformatics are:

1) Transcend geographical and economical barriers to the exchange of ideas
that facilitates the interaction and collaboration among scientists and
educators around the world.

2) Address the benefits and limitations of the newest developments in
post-genomic technologies.

3) Explore the social and ethical implications of genomic and bioinformatic
research

4) Establish new ways to introduce high school community about today's
multidisciplinary science.


Topics of the Virtual Conference includes but not limited to:

. Structural and Functional Genomics

. Post-Genomic Data Standardization, Management, and Integration

. Statistical and Computational Approaches for Gene Expression Analysis

. Sequence Annotation

. Metabolic Profiling and Simulation of Cellular Processes

. Social and Ethical Implications of Genomic Research

. High Throughput Computing and Distributed Memory Infrastructures
