On October 29 – November 2, 2008, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the RECOMB Regulatory Genomics / Systems Biology / DREAM conference brought three separate conferences together in a single venue. The meeting combined the 5th RECOMB Satellite Conference on Regulatory Genomics, chaired by Manolis Kellis, the 4th RECOMB Satellite Conference on Systems Biology, chaired by Andrea Califano, and the 3rd DREAM Conference, chaired by Gustavo Stolovitzky.
The first two conferences had previously spun off from the RECOMB conference on Research in Computational Molecular Biology. RECOMB was founded in 1997 as a forum for computer science issues in biology, and was last held in March–April 2008 in Singapore. The DREAM conference (Dialog for Reverse Engineering Assessments and Methods) began in 2006 with a more focused goal of evaluating systems biology tools for building biological networks.
This eBriefing focuses on the keynote talks of the three conferences, and pulls together common themes that were officially presented in separate conferences.
This conference and eBriefing were made possible with support from Merck Research Laboratories, IBM, and the NIH Roadmap Magnet Center.
