Molecular Interaction Technologies ’98

October 19-20, 1998, San Francisco, California

An enormous demand for high throughput methods to identify both natural
and artificial ligands for expressed sequences has been created by the
recent explosion in genomic and bioinformatic research.   Although
molecular interaction studies began using in vitro immunoscreening and
phage display technologies, the development of the yeast two hybrid
system in 1989 accelerated the pace of in vivo interaction analysis.
Since then a number of creative technologies have been developed to
study molecular interactions inside cells or whole organisms. The
purpose of this meeting is to bring together innovators in the
development of these technologies.   These methods have wide application
for basic cellular and molecular biology, drug target identification and
pharmaceutical development.
