San Diego, CA, December 6, 2006 -- Calit2's Center for Algorithmic and Systems Biology (CASB) at UCSD was formally inaugurated Nov. 30 at the first conference to be held under the center's auspices. CASB director Pavel Pevzner and co-director Steven Briggs were on hand for Algorithmic Biology 2006, which featured a slate of invited speakers that attracted more than 120 registered attendees, many of whom stayed on to attend two other conferences at Calit2 Oct. 1-3 on systems biology and computational proteomics.

Most of the proceedings of Algorithmic Biology are now archived and available for on-demand viewing. To view the streaming videos, click on the image or video link below [Real player and broadband connection required].
