Second IEEE International Computational Systems Bioinformatics Conference Dedicates Session to Genomes to Life
Published: August 27, 2003
Posted: September 05, 2003

The Genomes to Life (GTL) program was the subject of an entire session at the Second International Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., Computational Systems Bioinformatics Conference, held August 11-14, at Stanford University. The meeting, in general, focused on the role of informatics in addressing today's pressing biological and medical issues. This Office of Science (SC) workshop was the first presented on the west coast as part of its ongoing effort to inform scientists from many disciplines of the critical need for bioinformatics and computing research in the GTL program. Dr. Marvin Frazier, SC Life Sciences Division Director, was one of three key note speakers. GTL scientists from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and the University of Massachusetts--Amherst spoke at the meeting. The meeting was partially sponsored by the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research.
