The conference keynote speaker is David Haussler, UC Santa Cruz Scientific Director, Genomics Institute. A distinguished professor of biomolecular engineering, David has led UC Santa Cruz to global prominence in genomics. His research team assembled and posted the first working draft of the genome on the Internet on July 7, 2000, thereby ensuring the human genome would exist forever in the public domain.
