     The sessions will cover natural antisense and the mechanisms of antisense
and sense gene suppression in transgenic organisms. Current applications and 
future prospects in research and in the agricultural and food industries and 
in the medical and vetinary sectors will be covered.

Provisional Sessions:

Session 1: Natural antisense in prokaryotes and eukaryotes

Sessions 2 & 3: Mechanisms of transgene silencing in plants
Sessions 4 & 5: Agricultural and horticultural applications of transgene 

Session 6: Gene silencing in animal systems

Session 7: Medical and vetinary applications of antisense

In addition to the invited talks, there will be opportunities for offered 
papers, poster sessions and discussion.
The conference will be residential and located at the self contained Sutton 
Bonington campus of Nottingham University. The proceedings will be published by
