RECOMB 2005 Recap

The Ninth Annual International Conference on Research in Computational and Molecular Biology (RECOMB 2005). co-sponsored by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and Boston University's Center for Advanced Genomic Technology, welcomed 625 delegates May 14-18 to the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA, USA.

The scientific program featured 8 keynote talks. 39 Paper presentations and over 200 posters.Two of the keynote presentations were named lectures: Charles DeLisi (Boston University) presented RECOMB 2005 The Stanislaw Ulam Memorial Computational Biology Lecture with a talk titled "Discovery and Annotation of Genetic Modules." And Jonathan King (MIT) presented the RECOMB 2005 Distinguished Biology Lectur. By delivering a talk titled "AminoAcid Sequence Control of the Folding of Parallel ß5-Helix, the Simplext ß-Sheet Fold"

Kudos to Jill Mesirov of the Broad Institute and Simon Kasif of Boston University for organizing an exceptional conference. And, of course, they could not have done it without the professional conference coordination of Gus Cervini and LynnVitiello. who worked hard to ensure a great experience for all.

Mark your calendars now for RECOMB 2006: Venice, Italy. April 2-5. For full details, see recomb06.dei.unipd.it/
