Meeting Objective

The 12th workshop in this series was held in Washington D.C., Friday evening, October 25 through Monday afternoon, October 28, 2002. Interested investigators actively engaged in any aspect of the functional, expression or evolutionary analysis of transcribed sequences were invited to send an abstract.

Topics discussed include but are not limited to: 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 2D-gel and mass spectrometry proteomics, analysis of protein structure, function and modification
