 Subject: Conference BGRS'2004
 The Fourth International Conference on Bioinformatics of Genome Regulation
 and Structure (BGRS'2004)
 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
 Dear Colleagues:
 Program and Organizing Committees have honor to announce the traditional
 biennial event-The Fourth International Conference on Bioinformatics of
 Genome Regulation and Structure (BGRS'2004)-to be held on July 25-30, 2004,
 in Akademgorodok, Novosibirsk, Russia.
 Do put it in your diaries, please!
 BGRS'2004 is a multidisciplinary conference, and we are pleased to invite
 scientists with an interest in bioinformatics, mathematical, theoretical, or
 computational biology to attend the meeting.
 Its scope includes development and application of advanced methods of
 computational and theoretical analysis to structure-function genome
 organization, proteomics, and evolutionary and system biology. The event
 addresses the latest research in these fields, and will be a great
 opportunity for attendees to showcase their works.
 BGRS'2004 provides a general forum for disseminating and facilitating the
 latest developments in bioinformatics in molecular biology, and we also
 invite scientists participating in experimental research and using
 theoretical and/or computational methods in their practice and/or
 researchers supported by INTAS grants to come. We will be delighted to see
 industry representatives from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies as
 BGRS'2004 conferees, too.
 BGRS'2004 topics of interest include:
  	COMPUTATIONAL STRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS
 Large-scale genome analysis and comparison; genome functional annotation,
 gene finding and prediction; genome knowledge bases and ontologies; mobile
 genetic elements and repeated DNA sequences, DNA nucleosomal organization.
 Regulatory genomic sequences: databases and knowledge bases, computer
 analysis, modeling and simulation, comparative genomics of regulatory
 regions; gene expression (models of transcription, splicing, and translation
 control);
  	COMPUTATIONAL STRUCTURAL AND FUNCTIONAL PROTEOMICS
 RNA structure-function organization (analysis and prediction); protein
 structure and function analysis, modeling, and prediction; classification of
 folds and structural motifs in proteins; functional sites and active centers
 in 3D protein structure (recognition and modeling of function); large-scale
 analysis of proteomes and protein-protein interactions;
  	COMPUTATIONAL SYSTEM BIOLOGY
 Gene networks, regulatory networks, signal transduction pathways, metabolic
 pathways, gene expression pathways (databases and knowledge bases, computer
 analysis, modeling, and simulation); In silico reconstruction of gene
 networks by computational analysis of microarray data; description and
 modeling of intracellular dynamics; intercellular communication modeling;
 virtual cell; networks and development; systems biology and biotechnology,
 epigenetics;
  	COMPUTATIONAL EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY
 Genetic variation (SNPs, haplotypes, etc.); large scale genome
 rearrangements; genome polymorphism; molecular evolution, regulatory systems
 and metabolic pathways; comparative genomics; evolution of protein structure
 and function; phylogenetic trees reconstruction; horizontal transmission of
 genetic information;
  	METHODS TO ANALYZE AND SIMULATE BIOMOLECULAR SYSTEMS AND PROCESSES
 Integrating genetic, functional, and molecular pathways with genetic
 networks from complex genetic trait analysis; interactive links between
 bioinformatics and experimental research on functional genomics (gene
 expression array analysis and other new technologies and methods); data
 warehousing, knowledge discovery, data mining, and machine learning in
 genomics and proteomics; superlarge computer systems in molecular biology
 and molecular genetics, high performance computing in functional and
 structural genomics and proteomics; data management methods and systems;
 database integration; data visualization; string and graph algorithms;
 stochastic modeling;
  	BIOINFORMATICS AND EDUCATION
 As at previous conferences, the BGRS'2004 program will be composed of
 plenary lectures, oral reports, specialized poster sessions, computer
 demonstrations, software demonstrations, round table discussions, and
 tutorials.
 International Program Committee is co-chaired by
 Nikolay Kolchanov (Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Novosibirsk, Russia)
 and Ralf Hofestaedt (University of Bielefeld, Germany).
 Local Organizing Committee is chaired by Dagmara Furman (Institute of
 Cytology and Genetics, Novosibirsk, Russia).
