In this talk, we will explore the
potential impact of a signal 
processing on the study of 
genomics and systems biology.  
We will provide some preliminary
glimpses into the potential of 
signal processing to shed light 
on bio-molecular systems and
structures. We will also explore
the possible practical benefits
of signal processing on gene
regulation control in an effort
to combat disease.

Dan Schonfeld received the
B.S. degree in Electrical
Engineering and Computer 
Science from the University 
of California at Berkeley, 
and the M.S. and
 Ph.D. degrees in 
Electrical and Computer
Engineering from 
The Johns Hopkins University, in 1986, 1988, and 1990, respectively.  In 1990, he
joined the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he is currently a Professor in the Departments
of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Bioengineering.  He has authored
over 200 technical papers in various journals and conferences.  Dr. Schonfeld has been
elected University Scholar of the University of Illinois and has been elevated to the rank of Fellow
of the IEEE and SPIE.  He is currently serving as Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on
Circuits and Systems for Video Technology.  His current research interests are in signal processing,
image and video analysis, video retrieval and communications, multimedia systems, computer vision,
medical imaging, and genomic signal processing.
