Third Virtual Conference on Genomics and Bioinformatics: September 16-19,

Advances in sequence analysis, transcriptional profiling, protein structural
elucidation and well 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" was develop as a way to provide an advanced
collaborative environment for the exchange and discussion of information
related to innovations of the post-genomic era. Since 2001 the Virtual
Conferences is featuring high profile researchers and educators working
actively in the development of new applications to understand complex
biological systems. Without registration fees, and using the Access Grid
technology and live video streaming the 2002 Virtual Conference is broadcast
simultaneously to more 2000 researchers in 40 countries and 33 states within
the US.

The main goals of the Virtual Conference in Genomics and Bioinformatics:

- Transcend geographical and economical barriers to 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 high school community about today's
multidisciplinary science.
