		DNA fingerprinting + forensics (Andy Urquhart)
	Single-cell PCR, sexing, CF diagnosis and fingerprinting (Ian Findlay)
	Update on preimplantation diagnosis (Alan Handyside)
	Free communications

As the number of delegates is limited, places will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. As demand is likely to be high, it would be advantageous to register (free) as soon as possible. 

If you wish to present a free communication, please inform the organisers so that arrangements can be made as soon as possible.

Registration and further details can be obtained from: Ian Findlay, Institute of Epidemiology, University of Leeds, 34, Hyde Terrace, Leeds, LS2 9LN. Telephone 0113 292 6459, fax 0113 292 6452 or preferably by email at ianf at
