In early March 2005, students in Virginia Commonwealth University's Introduction to Bioinformatics course established collaborations with researchers from different institutions to address a question of molecular biology to which the tools of bioinformatics might well be applied. The Symposium provides a forum for the dissemination of the fruits of those collaborations.
