RIVERSIDE, Calif. Before he left for Bangladesh to conduct a workshop this summer, Glenn Hicks of the University of California, Riverside did not quite know what to expect. What he knew was that he would be leading a workshop, called "Workshop on Genomics and Proteomics," from July 16 through July 24 at the University of Dhaka, the premier public university in Bangladesh. What his brief visit to that country's capital taught him, though, was that education is critical for all of our futures and that with patience education could help overcome even great cultural and economic differences.

Aimed at providing an overview of genomics and proteomics, the workshop, the first of its kind that UC Riverside has offered in Bangladesh, was funded by the World Bank and hosted by the University of Dhaka's Botany Department.

"I learned early in the workshop that the faculty and students were aware of genomics and proteomics, but not in terms of a practical understanding of the technologies, theories and practice," said Hicks, an academic administrator of facilities at UCR's Institute for Integrative Genome Biology and an associate research plant cell biologist. "So an important goal was to present and discuss how these modern approaches can be utilized in a useful manner towards problems of interest to Bangladesh.

"I learned, too, that many of the research projects in the department were biotechnology-oriented towards solving problems that are important for, and in some cases unique to, Bangladesh projects like plant virus and fungal disease resistance, bioremediation, and production of biomass for feeds and fertilizers," he added.

Hicks found that although th
