Registration and breakfast begin at 7:45 AM.
This program is sponsored by Bio-IT World
Join us as we take a look at how the Bio-IT space is unfolding and identify new business opportunities for software and Internet companies! Major advances in molecular biology and genomic technologies have led to an explosion of biological information generated by pharmaceuticals, biotechs and the scientific community in general.
With the advent of the Human Genome Project,
science-based companies find themselves managing
huge amounts of data, which in turn has created an
urgent need for software tools to store, organize,
index, view and analyze this data. Their ability to do so
quickly and accurately has a direct impact on the cost
and speed with which they can bring new products to
market. This new demand for IT products and expertise opens
the door for a host of new opportunities in Bio-IT for
software and Internet companies.
