NYU workshop will bring together leading researchers on nano-technology, DNA computing, and genomics

NYU's Courant Institute to host workshop on mathematical problems in the molecular sciences

New York University will bring together a select group of outstanding researchers to share their most recent work on nano-technology, DNA computing, and genomics. The workshop will feature presentations by Harvard University's George Whiteside, a 1999 National Medal of Science winner, NYU's computer scientist Bud Mishra, University of Wisconsin's chemist Lloyd Smith and NYU's chemistry professor Ned Seeman, winner of the 1995 Feynman Prize in Nanotechnology.

The workshop is being sponsored by New York University's Courant Institute for Mathematical Science and the Office of the Dean for Science. It was organized by NYU professors Bud Mishra, Ned Seeman, and Misha Gromov.
