Molecular Analysis for Research and Diagnostics
February 14-15, 2001 . Hilton San Diego Resort . San Diego, California

Following the publication of the draft human genome, even greater emphasis
is being placed on innovative techniques and applications for car-rying
out molecular analysis of genes and proteins. Improvements in such areas as
sample preparation, detection of low copy number prod-ucts,
comparison and integration of data on several parameters, including temporal
and spatial, are among the techniques that are drawing
attention. Whether the purpose of the analysis is better understanding of
biology, target identification or validation, or for diagnostics, the role
of molecular analysis can be expected to continue to expand rapidly. This
conference provides a forum for discussion of key developments
and novel solutions that can provide benefits for researchers faced with the
challenge of carrying out similar studies.

Some of the possible topics to be covered:
Sources of material DNA, RNA and proteins . Single cell and in situ
Analysis . Tissue libraries . Laser Capture Microdissection Automated sample
preparation . Integrated sample prep and analysis
Types of analysis Better identification of heterozygote genes . Gene
mutations and post-translational modifications Comparisons of gene and
protein expression . Temporal and spatial cellular analysis Applications
Identifying pathways and response cascades . Molecular characterization of
cells and cell lines Validation of molecular targets . Multi-parameter
analysis of cellular response to drugs Diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers
and patterns

To submit a proposal for an oral presentation, please e-mail or fax a
proposed presentation title and brief summary (4-5 sentences)
by September 8, 2000.

Additional supporting material could also be helpful. Poster presentations
are also invited.
