Peter Markstein, a Principal Scientist at HP Labs, and Vicky Markstein, a consultant in computer architecture and programming, quickly offered to help.
Vicky is General Chair, Peter is Program Chair and Michele is delivering a tutorial on "Biology for Computer Scientists.
"We found what appeared to be enhancers in about a dozen places," says Peter
"Some of them were quite surprising.
That was an important enough finding for the resulting paper -- co-authored by Michele, Peter, Vicky and Michele's advisor, Professor Michael Levine of UC Berkeley -- published in January in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Indeed, the success of what started as a fun family project has led to bioinformatics being Peter Markstein's
main focus at HP Labs
working to better understand the field's particular computing challenges, with the goal of helping HP
determine how to best supply tools and support for bioinformatics.
is working on a new search tool.
"What we've done on the fly has pretty sure implications for humans," says Peter

...Peter Markstein received his SB and SM degrees in Mathematics from M.I.T., and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from N.Y.U. Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
At IBM, he
was active in computer architecture, optimizing compilers, and floating point arithmetic.He was a member of the "801 Project", one of the earliest RISC computer projects.
This work led to the RS/6000 family of computers, where Dr. Markstein's
work influenced the RS/6000 architecture and resulted in the XL family of optimizing compilers. Dr. Markstein has been a member of HP Labs since 1992.He
was an active participant in the Precision Architecture Wide Word project, which ultimately became the Itanium computer.His
contributions to Itanium influenced its floating point architecture, compiler development, and elementary function library.His
book, "IA-64 and Elementary Functions: Speed and Precision", was one of the earliest books published about Itanium.He led the development of HP's first Java Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler.
Since 2001, Dr. Markstein's
research efforts have been directed towards Bioinformatics.He
has been involved in developing software to scan genomes for potential enhancers, as well as identifying potential binding motifs from sets of gene regulatory regions.The goal is to gain a deeper understanding of gene regulation. Dr. Markstein is a member of the IEEE-754R Committee, which is developing a revised floating point arithmetic standard.In Bioinformatics, he has been Program Chair for the 2002 IEEE Computer Society Bioinformatics Conference (CSB2002), as well as Program Co-Chair for CSB2003, CSB2004, and CSB2005.He is Program Co-Chair of the Life Sciences Society Computational Systems Bioinformatics Conference (CSB2006).He has also served as guest editor for four issues of the Journal of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
