ASM and TIGR team up on microbial genomes conference

The American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR) will cosponsor the Conference on Microbial Genomes, to be held January 28-31, 2001 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Monterey, California.

When scientists complete the sequencing of the human genome in the next year or so, their work will have just begun. They will be faced with an enormous database listing genetic sequences that must be deciphered to have any practical use. Fortunately, bacteria often contain genes similar to those found in humans, and scientists may already know what these genes do. The smaller, less complex genomes of microbes will serve as the genomic equivalent of the Rosetta Stone to help interpret and understand the human genome.

Proteomics, the study of the expression and interaction of proteins, has taken off in the wake of microbial genome sequencing. The synergy between between these two fields will quickly shed light on how some microbes cause disease and help identify targets for new drugs. Microbial genomes will also offer important information for developing new DNA-based vaccines, gene therapies and new biodegradable chemicals for industrial processes.

Session topics include genome projects, evolution, functional genomics and bioinformatics. More detailed information, including a preliminary program and general registration information can be found online at http://www.asmusa.org/mtgsrc/MicrobialGenomesg.htm. A limited number of complimentary registrations are available to members of the press. Pre-registration is required for the media. If you are interested in attending as press please contact Jim Sliwa, ASM Office of Communications, jsliwa@asmusa.org, or by phone at (202) 942-9297.
