We are pleased to announce you the Conference TRANSCRIPTOME 2000, at the
Pasteur Institute, Paris, 6-9 November 2000.
A series of scientific meetings and coordination workshops have been
organized over the past ten years to discuss the development of cDNA
research in the context of the Human Genome Program, then extended by the
IMAGE Consortium founders (Charles Auffray, Greg Lennon, Mihael
Polymeropoulos and Bento Soares), with the active support of DOE (Marvin
Stodolsky) and other private and public research institutions worldwide.
TRANSCRIPTOME 2000 is the scientific meeting of this series which will be
held in Paris on November 6-9 in conjunction with the 5th International
Coordination Workshop on Complete cDNA sequencing.
The meeting of this year comes at an important point in the Human Genome
Program, when the working draft of the sequence will have been completed and
made available to the scientific community.
The meeting will therefore be an excellent occasion to review all the work
done in the field of cDNA research so far, the consequences for genome
annotation, the exploding development of functional and computational
genomics and proteomics studies of human physiology and pathology, as well
as the related social, legal and ethical issues.
The coordination workshop will be a forum for academic and industrial
scientists to discuss the technical, scientific and intellectual property
issues associated with the challenge of a comprehensive description of the
