Practical Innovation at BioCon 2003


The Genes, the Whole Genes, and Nothing But the Genes
Jim Kent, UC Santa Cruz Genome Bioinformatics Group

Track: Keynote
Date: Tuesday, February 04
Time: 9:15am - 10:15am
Location: California Ballroom

Jim Kent is the recipient of this year's Ben Franklin Award, presented by Bioinformatics.Org.

The human genome sequence is essentially complete. Finding all of the genes in the genome remains an ongoing challenge. We have many effective techniques for finding coding exons, but turning "probable coding exons" into full-length mRNA sequence on all splicing varients takes time. Though comparative genomics is a useful first step, finding the regulatory regions associated with a gene is even more difficult. Kent highlights our progress on these and other problems in genome annotation.
