Seattle Biomedical Research Institute Hosts Landmark TriTryp Genomes Meeting; Researchers From Around The World Gather To Present Completed Sequences Of Three Genomes

Beginning today, Seattle Biomedical Research Institute (SBRI) is hosting a landmark international scientific conference, the 2004 TriTryp Genomes Meeting, which will bring together experts from around the world to discuss the first drafts of the genome sequences for three parasites that cause deadly infectious diseases including leishmaniasis, Chagas disease and African sleeping sickness. SBRI was chosen as host because of its leadership role in determining the genome sequences of Leishmania major, the parasite that causes leishmaniasis, a disease currently afflicting U.S. soldiers stationed in the Middle East, and Trypanosoma cruzi, the agent of Chagas disease, which affects millions in central and South America, as well as its reputation for cutting edge work on these pathogens and key role in comparing the three genomes.
