            Course on Molecular Embryology and Transgenic Technology
            November 24 to  December 15, 1996
            Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong
            
            This is a 3-week intensive lecture and practical  course co-sponsored
            by the Industry Department and Dr. & Mrs. Clyde Wu Fund. It is
            designed for researchers to acquire information and technical skills
            for producing transgenic animals for basic, medical and
            biotechnology research.
            Topics: The course will cover molecular aspects of development,
            manipulating the mammalian genome and applications of transgenic
            technology and include pre- and postimplantation mouse
            development; embryonic stem cells, chimeras, gene transfer
            techniques, genetics, phenotype analysis, transgenic models of 
            human diseases, transgenic farm animals, and xenotransplantation
            Course co-ordinators: Kathryn Cheah (Hong Kong), Robin Lovell-
            Badge (London), Mai Har Sham (Hong Kong) and  Patrick Tam
            (Sydney).
