Meeting Objective

BITS2001 attendeesTopics discussed included: mammalian gene and genome organization as determined from the construction of transcriptional maps and genomic sequence analysis; expression analysis of novel mammalian genes; analysis of genomic sequence, including gene and regulatory sequence prediction and verification, and annotation for public databases; expression and mutation analysis, and comparative mapping and genomic sequence analysis in model organisms (e.g. yeast, C.elegans, drosophila, zebrafish, pufferfish, chicken, mouse rat); construction and analysis of transgenic organisms; evolutionary comparisons; novel approaches for functional analysis of transcribed sequences; construction of full length and 5' specific cDNA libraries; cDNA array screening and analysis; RNA processing, including RNA editing, RNAi, antisense RNA and regulatory sequences; database construction, management and use in expression and functional analysis; and analysis of protein structure and function.
