'Frontiers In Bioinformatics' symposium to be held by UB Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics

BUFFALO, N.Y. -- World-class scientists in the fields of bioinformatics, structural genomics and proteomics will gather next month at a symposium presented by the University at Buffalo Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics to discuss the cutting-edge science essential for advancements in genetic analysis and drug discovery in the post-genomic era.

The "Frontiers in Bioinformatics" symposium, to be held June 6-8 at the Adams Mark Hotel in Buffalo, will be among the first conferences in the world to explore collaborative approaches to structural genomics, evolutionary genomics and large-scale simulations of genome annotation, according to Jeffrey Skolnick, director of the Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics.

"The mapping of the human genome provides the raw material for addressing exciting post-genomic challenges," Skolnick said. "We have at hand the information needed to predict the function of all gene products, correlate these products with disease and develop potential treatments for disease.

"The challenge for the scientists who will gather at the symposium is how to elucidate the function of each gene and extract medically relevant and biologically important information that can lead to medical breakthroughs," he added.

The symposium also will provide an opportunity to introduce the UB Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics to the world's scientific community and enhance global awareness of Buffalo Niagara's world-class life-sciences resources and facilities, Skolnick said.

"With the Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and the other research centers at UB and throughout the region, Buffalo Niagara has the unique capability to move from genetic analysis of disease, to drug development, to clinical trial of a drug in an efficient and synergistic one-stop-shopping scenario," he noted.

Topics to be discussed at the symposium include protein structure and function prediction, prediction of protein-protein i
