Third Virtual Conference on Genomics and Bioinformatics. Sharing Knowledge
with the World
September 16-19, 2003. No registration fees to Participate

Advances in sequence analysis, transcriptional profiling, protein structural
elucidation and other genomic techniques are producing an overwhelming
accumulation of data and the shift in the way biological research is
conducted. As new disciplines are integrated, the "Virtual Conferences on
Genomics and Bioinformatics" provides an advanced collaborative environment
for the exchange and discussion of innovations related to the post-genomic

The Goals of the Virtual Conferences on Genomics and Bioinformatics are:

*Transcend geographical and economical barriers for the exchange of ideas
that facilitates the interaction and collaboration among scientists and
educators around the world.
*Address the benefits and limitations of the newest developments in
post-genomic technologies.
*Explore the social and ethical implications of genomic and bioinformatic
*Establish new ways to introduce the high school community to today's
multidisciplinary science.
