The invited speakers to the Second Annual Dartmouth Integrative Biology Symposium are the intellectual and innovative leaders in their respective fields of genomics, proteomics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, and systems biology. The purpose of the symposium is to make the research and medical communities aware of the latest cutting-edge ideas and progress in systems biology, and to raise awareness of the exciting advances in integrative biology at Dartmouth.
High-throughput approaches are being employed in broad and diverse areas of research, including the probing of basic cell biology questions as to how genes differ and are differentially expressed at the RNA and protein levels, how cells and tissues interact to work as an integrated whole, the diagnosis and prognosis of disease, evolution of genes and gene expression, pathology and forensic applications, drug discovery and development, identification of drug targets in pharmacogenomics, and many other areas. The biostatistical and bioinformatics methods to analyze and integrate the huge volumes of data that are generated by these kind of studies are being developed at an phenomenal pace. Thus the theme of this year's Symposium: Emerging Technologies.
