FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

Cambridge Healthtech Institute's Second annual
Exploiting Yeast Molecular Biology for Therapeutics
January  20-21 2000
Miami FL

Scientific Advisory Board
Dr. Jef Boeke, Johns Hopkins University
Dr. Tauseef Butt, LifeSensors ,Inc.
Dr. Jasper Rine, University of California at Berkeley

Saccharomyces cerevisiae was the first eukaryotic genome to be
completely sequenced.. In the  four years since the sequence was
completed, yeast has become even more important as a model organism for
functional genomics and drug discovery. The lessons and techniques
learned using yeast are paving the way for future studies as the
sequencing of the human genome nears completion. This meeting will focus
on the latest research into yeast functional genomics and drug
discovery, including expression monitoring, protein-protein interactions
using the yeast two-hybrid system, and transgenic yeast as a tool for
drug screening and exploring human gene function.
SESSION TOPICS MAY INCLUDE:
Cross-genome comparisons
Gene expression monitoring
Data analysis and management
Drug screening
Protein-protein interactions
Proteomics
Target identification & validation
Variant yeast strains
Yeast databases
Yeast functional genomics
