Overview | Program | Presentations (members only) | Accommodations | Travel

Monday, February 12, 2007 – 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Amgen
One Kendall Square, Bldg. 1000,
Cambridge, MA

Overview

We are very pleased to announce a new meeting with a focus on Biotechnology. The PIUG Boston Biotechnology meeting will be held on Monday, February 12, 2007 hosted by Amgen, One Kendall Square, Bldg. 1000, Cambridge, MA. Due to space considerations this meeting is limited to 50 attendees.

The focus of this meeting will be sequence searching, particularly the following areas:

  1. The legal aspects of sequence searching (freedom to operate, patentability, validity)
  2. Content of sequence databases (GenBank, EMBL, DDBJ, PCTGEN, CAS Registry, GeneSeq)
  3. Software for searching sequences (exact, pattern matching, Smith-Waterman, blast, fasta, Genome Quest)
  4. Why do sequence searching and how to interpret results (explore the "cycle" and examine the connections between content, software and the legal question)

PIUG gratefully acknowledges the sponsorship support of BizInt, GeneIT, FIZ Karlsruhe and Threshold Information.
