Welcome to the 6th Georgia Tech-Oak Ridge National Lab
International Conference on Bioinformatics,
in silico Biology: Gene Discovery and Systems Genomics


10 year anniversary of the first conference in 1997 -- Gene Discovery in silico


Astonishing progress in genome related biological science and engineering has been made in the ten years since the first Georgia Tech bi-annual International Conference on Bioinformatics on Gene Discovery was held in Autumn 1997. In particular, molecular biology tremendously widened its horizons in terms of the number of species well studied on cellular and molecular levels. These advances occurred in large part with the guidance of genome analysis and comparative genomics. At the same time, the power of genome-based analysis made possible numerous discoveries revealing deep and important secrets of life at the cellular and sub-cellular levels.

This year, Georgia Tech continues the tradition of organizing this scienific forum, bringing together leading, world-renowned researchers in genomics and bioinformatics to present recent advances in the field and to discuss open problems. The 6th International Conference on Bioinformatics, to be held in November, will focus on Gene Discovery and Systems Genomics.
