and statistical genetics, twin themes of the long-running series of
annual MASAMB meetings (see the archive),
have gained huge impetus from large-scale genome sequencing projects
and development of high-throughput biological assay systems, including
gene-expression microarrays. These immense data resources, and the
underlying complexities of molecular and cell biology, provide exciting
research opportunitities for numerate scientists.
With typically around 60-80 participants
from mathematics, statistics, computer science, bioinformatics, biology
and related fields, the MASAMB meetings provide an intimate setting for
exchange of ideas in methodological and applied research. Research
students and scientists newly entering the field of genomic research
are particularly welcome.
The meeting will contain approximately 15
half-hour talks selected from participants' submissions (see timetable), plus a poster
