CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Workshop:  MOLECULAR BIOINFORMATICS
SEQUENCE ANALYSIS - THE HUMAN GENOME PROJECT
July 7, 1997

The availability of complete sequences and genomes opens up new prospects=
 and challanges for=20
analysis, interpretation, and visualization of genomic sequence data. The=
 integration of genomic=20
information over different autonomous data sources is essential. These in=
formation collections may=20
be either computational or abstract. For example, biological annotation c=
annot be computationally=20
generated nor verified (e.g. information on protein function). Therefore,=
 data integration and the=20
complete analysis of the complex data are time consuming efforts, requiri=
ng skills and knowledge.=20
Based on interdisciplinary projects, methods and concepts of computer sci=
ence are necessary to solve=20
these analysis problems. The implementation of parallel algorithms and pa=
rallel database systems is=20
of importance in the case of molecular biology. This Workshop has two obj=
ectives. The first is to=20
present new tools of the analysis of sequence data, including mathematica=
l, computational and=20
experimental methods. The second purpose is to discuss current results an=
d open problems for future=20
developments of this area of interdisciplinary research.
Original work are invited for oral presentations. Prospective authors sho=
uld submit a one page=20
descriptive summary of their work. Full-length papers from talks will be =
published in archival=20
proceedings.
Attendance at this Workshop will be limited.
