8th Annual Computational Molecular Biology Symposium at Carnegie Mellon
Wednesday, April 22, 2009
9 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Mellon Institute Conference Room
The Computational Molecular Biology Symposium brings together biologists, computer scientists, and interdisciplinary researchers from Carnegie Mellon, the University of Pittsburgh and the Western Pennsylvania community to share new approaches and cutting-edge findings in areas where computation and biology intersect. In honor of the 200th birthday of Charles Darwin, the theme of the 2009 symposium is “Evolution.” Past themes have included “Functional Genomics,” “RNA,” “The Human Genome,” “Biological Networks,” and “Biochemistry in the Cell.”
The symposium’s organizers invite all students, researchers, and individuals with a general scientific education, as well as the general public. The day’s events are free; however, registration is required for all attendees.
