A two and a half day meeting on G-quadruplexes was held in Louisville, KY, USA (April 18-21, 2009). A specific goal of this conference was to promote discussion on the biology of G-quadruplexes. In practice this was represented in four main ways, namely in biophysics, bio/nanotechnology, therapeutics, and what might be termed "intrinsic biology". Research into the basic biophysical and structural properties of G-quadruplexes continues to be important for understanding biology, and for optimizing aptamers for therapeutic and bio/technological purposes. The meeting comprised two Keynote lectures, twenty-three invited talks, and forty-two posters covering various aspects of these topics using a wide variety of technologies.
