The DNA-Proteome

The International Journal of Computational Bioscience publishes a conference report signed by H. Auer (IRB Barcelona) and E. Grotewold (Ohio State University ) on recent advances towards establishing the protein DNA interaction space. The report is the result of the Barcelona BioMed Conference, the DNA-Proteome, held in April 2009 and supported by the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) and the Fundación BBVA.

The DNA-Proteome conference brought together 150 scientists from Austria, Australia, Argentina, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the UK, the US, Spain, Switzerland and Sweden for 3 days (April 20–22, 2009) in the Institut d’Estudis Catalans in Barcelona. This was the first gathering of it kind to specifically explore advances in the establishing the DNA–protein space in eukaryotic organisms, from humans to yeast and plants.
