Keynote change--Christopher Hogue, Senior Scientist at the
Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute of Mt. Sinai Hospital, will deliver the
Thursday Keynote address,
Saccharomyces cerevisiae - Some Assembly Required. Hogue replaces Celera's
Gene Meyers who is unable to attend the conference.
New Section Added--Due to overwhelming response, a new
section of Peter Schattner's tutorial,
and Bioperl: Tools for Automated Analysis of Biological Sequence Data,
has been added to the O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology Conference. The new
tutorial is slated for Monday morning, January 28, 2002.
The O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology Conference will
feature an informal poster
session. Participation is open to all speakers and registered
attendees of the conference. This poster event provides a relaxed
opportunity for attendees to learn about each others' work, and to meet

complete conference coverage, see O'Reilly's
Interview with Dr. Leroy Hood--We spoke to Dr. Leroy Hood about
systems biology, bioinformatics, and the future of biological research. Dr.
Hood is the founder of the Institute for Systems Biology and he is
the closing keynote at O'Reilly's upcoming Bioinformatics Technology
Leroy Hood to Give Closing Keynote--Dr. Leroy Hood will talk about
how the Human Genome Project has altered the view and practice of biology
in the closing keynote address Thursday, January 31, at the O'Reilly
Bioinformatics Technology Conference. Dr. Hood is recognized as one of the
world's leading scientists in molecular biotechnology and
with Lincoln Stein--Bioinformatics Technology Conference Keynote
Lincoln Stein talks about his current projects, his opinion on patent issues in
biology, and why Perl has become the programming language of choice in
at What Cost?--Christopher Dwan examines the trade-offs involved in
using tools based on heuristic algorithms, like BLAST, which performs
sequence-based homology searches in bioinformatics. Christopher will be
speaking on this
topic at O'Reilly's upcoming Bioinformatics Technology Conference.
An Interview with the Bioinformatics Conference Chairs--Learn why bioinformatics is a hot topic at O'Reilly in this interview with Nathan Torkington and Lorrie LeJeune, co-chairs of the upcoming O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology
Protein Domains with Perl--James Tisdall, author of O'Reilly's
Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics, shows biologists how to program
in Perl using biological data, with downloadable code examples. James is
speaking about Beginning
Perl for Bioinformatics at O'Reilly's Bioinformatics Technology
Interview with Ewan Birney--O'Reilly Web editor Bruce Stewart spoke with
conference keynote Ewan Birney about Bioperl, Ensembl, and the importance of
open source bioinformatics.
Want to Program Computers--The economic and scientific benefits of
biologists learning to program are explained by James Tisdall, author of
O'Reilly's upcoming book Beginning Perl for
Bio Hackathon--For the first time, open source
bioinformatics developers will meet face-to-face in an international
"hackathon"--a hands on programming event held in coordination with the
O'Reilly Authors Cynthia Gibas & Per Jambeck will
speak at the O'Reilly's Bioinformatics Technology Conference. Cynthia
Academic Freedom Panel, and Per co-presents
