Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing 2001

The Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing (PSB 2001) was an international, multidisciplinary conference for the presentation and discussion of current research in the theory and application of computational methods in problems of biological significance. Papers and presentations were rigorously peer reviewed and were published in an archival proceedings volume. PSB 2001 was held January 3-7, 2001, in Hawaii, at the The Orchid at Mauna Lani on the Big Island of Hawaii.

PSB 2001 brought together top researchers from the US, the Asian Pacific nations and around the world to exchange research results and address open issues in all aspects of computational biology. PSB is a forum for the presentation of work in databases, algorithms, interfaces, visualization, modeling and other computational methods, as applied to biological problems, with emphasis on applications in data-rich areas of molecular biology.

The PSB has been designed to be responsive to the need for critical mass in sub-disciplines within biocomputing. For that reason, it is the only meeting whose sessions are defined dynamically each year in response to specific proposals. PSB sessions are organized by leaders in the emerging areas, and targeted to provide a forum for publication and discussion of research in biocomputing's "hot topics." In this way, PSB provides an early forum for serious examination of emerging methods and approaches in this rapidly changing field.

In 2001, the PSB sessions were:
