We are announcing the Second International Conference
on Bioinformatics of Genome Regulation and Structure,
that is to be held in Novosibirsk on August 7-14, 2000.
This conference will be the second in the series.
The First International Conference on Bioinformatics of Genome
Regulation and Structure held in Novosibirsk in August 1998
revealed that accumulation, analysis and recognition of genomic
regulatory sequences have become now the actual problems in

BGRS'2000 will bring together experts in
Bioinformatics to discuss the progress in this field achieved
at the end of 20th century. The researchers working in the fields
of experimental biology and interested in application of
Bioinformatics methods in their work are also welcome. This
conference is also expected to be a stimulating event to
establish new links between Bioinformatics and experimental
research. It will focus mainly on the following topics:
- Databases on regulatory genomic sequences and regulatory
- Representation and integration of data on regulation of gene
expression, genenets;
- Databases, computer analysis, and modeling of metabolic pathways;
- Computer methods of analysis and recognition of regulatory
genomic sequences;
- Methods of analysis and prediction of functional site activity;
- Computer technologies for automatic knowledge discovery
on gene regulation;
- Gene structure prediction;
- Models of transcription, splicing and translational control;
- Large-scale genome analysis and functional annotation of
nucleotide sequences;
- The search for objective methods in annotating and finding
signals in genomic sequences;
- Evolution of regulatory genomic sequences;
 Aspects of protein structure and structural genomics
related to regulation;
- Interactive links between Bioinformatics and experimental
research on functional genomics (Micro array/biochips and
other genome technologies)

Scientific program of the conference will include plenary lectures,
symposia, posters and Internet computer demonstrations, round table

The deadline for submission of extended abstracts (up to 4 pages)
 is March 15, 2000. The notification of acceptance will follow by
 April 15, 2000.
