[updated 10 Jun 2002] **The venue for Bioinformatics and Protein Interaction (10 - 12 June 2002) special workshop was relocated to The Big One of LIT.


The Bioinformatics and Protein Interactions Workshop, jointly organised by the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS) and the Laboratories for Information Technology (LIT) will be held on June 10-12 at the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (IMS), NUS, Singapore. It is a part of the IMS series of meetings on the POST-GENOME KNOWLEDGE DISCOVERY. This workshop will feature keynote talks by Terry Lybrand and Peter Kuhn, and a number of invited speakers. Attendance is free.

Protein networks control almost all biological processes. Cell signalling, molecular interactions and trafficking, and receptor activations all involve protein interactions. Proteins interact with other biological molecules: proteins, DNA, RNA, carbohydrates, and lipids. Proteins also interact with non-biological materials such as metal or salts. These interactions are crucial in the initiation and regulation of biological processes. The genomics and proteomics efforts help identify new proteins or new protein interactions, attribute biological functions, and clarify structural information of proteins. We have an incomplete understanding of these interactions and our current ability to predict, control, disrupt, or design specific interactions is limited. Combining the biological knowledge of protein interactions with bioinformatics approaches facilitates biological research and discovery.


Bioinformatics applies information technology in acquisition, storage, retrieval, analysis, and modelling of biological data. The Protein Interactions Workshop will bring together protein scientists and bioinformaticians to discuss the issues of protein interaction analysis and the capability of bioinformatics methods in advancing the study of proteins. The workshop will focus on experimental and bioinformatics protein analysis, prediction of protein interactions, and protein data mining.

The objective of this workshop is to provide the advanced training in the field of protein bioinformatics and communicate some of the latest developments in protein analysis and data mining to the audience. The target audience is professionals and students working in life sciences and bioinformatics, either as researchers, developers, or service providers. The workshop is open to participants from both academia and industry.




Bioinformatics, biological databases, computational biology, data mining, data warehousing, molecular modelling, protein analysis, protein interactions, proteomics, structural biology, structure-function analysis.
