LOCALE: Toronto, Canada (ISMB 2008)
DATES: July 18-19, 2008

The Automated Function Prediction (AFP) special interest group and the
Biosapiens European network of excellence are teaming up to hold a two-day
Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting alongside ISMB 2008.

The deluge of genomic information is challenging biologists to annotate this
data, from locating genes in the raw data through predicting the function
form protein sequence and structure. AFP and Biosapiens share many common
goals, and this year we have decided to join forces for a meeting that will
deal with a wide scope of gene, protein, and genomic annotations. This
meeting is held alongside ISMB, the largest conference on computational
biology worldwide.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:

  - Patricia Babbitt, University of California San Francisco, USA
  - Peer Bork, European Molecular Biology Laboratories, Germany
  - Andrew Emili, University of Toronto, Canada
  - Roderic Guigó, Institut Municipal d'Investigació Mèdica, Universitat
  Pompeu Fabra, Spain
  - Barry Honig, Columbia University and Howard Hughes Medical
  Institute, USA
  - Kimmen Sjölander, University of California Berkeley, USA
  - Olga Troyanskaya, Princeton University, USA
