FINAL NOTICE and PRELIMINARY PROGRAM

Electrophoresis '96

The Electrophoresis Society will hold its annual meeting
and exhibit March 24-27, 1996, at the Emory University Conference
Hotel, 1615 Clifton Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30329, phone (404) 712-6000.
Join us at this new hotel and high-tech conference
center for a program that will bring together experts in many
areas of electrophoretic sciences.  The Center is located
adjacent to Emory University, the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, and the American Cancer Society.

Several no-cost workshops are offered, as follows:
     1, Stratagene--"A Novel and Exciting Electrophoresis System
     for DNA Sequencing." (Monday)
     2. CSPI/Scanalytics--"Advancements in Analysis and Data
     basing of 1-D and 2-D Gel Studies: RFLPscan Plus and Gellab II
     Plus Software." (Monday)
     3. Bio-Rad Laboratories--"Melanie II 2-D PAGE Analysis
     Software: Revolutionizing Two-Dimensional Analysis." (Monday)
     4. Dr. Peter Lemkin, NCI, NIH--"Use of the Internet for
     Scientific Communication and Data basing." (Tuesday)
     5. Packard Instrument Co.--"Use of Electronic
     Autoradiography for Real Time Image Analysis and Fast,
     Direct Quantitation of Radioisotopes in Gels and Blots."
     (Tuesday)
     6. Oxford GlycoSystems--"Two-Dimensional Electrophoresis
     Using the Investigator System and Image Analysis of 2-D Gels
     with BioImage Software." (Tuesday)
