On behalf of H. P. Saluz (HKI, Jena), 
A.Rosenthal (IMB Jena), 
A. Poustka (DKFZ Heidelberg), 
H. Lehrach (MPI, Berlin, 
W.-D. Schleunig (Schering AG, Berlin) 
it is our pleasure to invite you to the first Beutenbergsymposium on 
"Genome Analysis: Strategies, Medical and Industrial Applications" 
in Jena, Germany. 
This meeting will be held in the Quality Hotel Jena 
>From June 28 to 30, 1995.

The aim of this meeting is to discuss the latest results of genome research 
and to connect scientific benefits with the interests of industry and business. 
The meeting should help people in the fields of structural and functional 
genome analysis to exchange ideas that will be universally applicable 
rather than system-oriented.

This announcement is followed by the registration sheet and the 
preliminary program of the meeting.

Those interested in participating are requested to fax the registration sheet 
back to: 49-3641-656255. Deadline: June 15, 1995.

We look forward to your participation in this ambitious, 
exciting meeting. 

If you have any further questions concerning this meeting
do not hesitate to contact us:
