||This symposium is conducted by the National Center for Toxicogenomics, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institutes of Health. The goal of the symposium is to bring together outstanding experts in the fields of functional genomics, proteomics, toxicology, informatics, and database development. The new science of toxicogenomics aims to discover mechanisms by combining clinical, genomic, and proteomic knowledge into a common framework for understanding the biochemical and genetic pathways to disease. The meeting format will consist of presentations by invited speakers as well as discussion leaders to facilitate a free exchange of information. The symposium is designed to bring together a diverse group of scientists working in the areas of gene environment interactions, toxicology, genomics, informatics, and database development.
