Carnegie Mellon
Computational Molecular Biology Symposium

The Carnegie Mellon Computational Molecular Biology Symposia are designed to introduce computational molecular biology and genomics to Carnegie Mellon students and faculty member. The goal of this annual event is to provide a focus of interaction for the computational biology community and inspire new collaborations.

Since its inception in 2001, this series has been a showcase for cutting edge computational molecular biology. Invited speakers present research on the application of computational methods from algorithm and complexity theory, sequence comparison, statistics, linguistics and statistical physics to molecular biology, as well as emerging technologies that generate the biomolecular data that drives this field:

     The First Computational Molecular Biology Symposium:
Research in computational functional genomics at Carnegie Mellon.

Organizers: Dannie Durand, Michael Erdmann

     The Second Computational Molecular Biology Symposium:
RNA - its evolution, function and application in biotechnology.

Organizer: Dannie Durand

     The Third Computational Molecular Biology Symposium:
Computational challenges in the acquisition and interpretation of the human sequence.

Organizer: Dannie Durand

     In 2004, the symposium will be replaced by the
Second RECOMB Satellite Workshop on Computational Methods for SNPs and Haplotypes

Organizers: Kathryn Roeder, Russell Schwartz, Carnegie Mellon University and Eran Halperin, Princeton University

     The Fourth Computational Molecular Biology Symposium:
Networks in Biology

Organizers: Ziv Bar-Joseph, Russell Schwartz, Chris Langmead,
