Second International Conference on Transgenic Animals
Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees of the Second 
International Conference on Transgenic Animals, it is our pleasure to
invite you to attend the Second International Conference on Transgenic 
Animals (2nd ICTA) in Beijing on Oct. 26-29, 1998. 

Transgenic animals play vital roles in diversified fields within the
life sciences. Today, we are experiencing an era of rapid development
in transgenic animal research worldwide. This conference will cover a
wide range of topics including the following sessions:
 1) Transgenic Bioreactors;
 2) Transgenic Models;
 3) Alternative Transgenic Models;
 4) Transgenic Transplantation Models;
 5) Transgenic Safety;
 6) Transgenic Techniques;
 7) Transgenic Bioinformatics.
The conference will provide a good opportunity for participants to meet
colleagues from different areas in the world, exchange ideas, strengthen
academic links and form friendships that transcend the boundaries of 
nationalities, race, religion and politics.

In addition, the International Society for Transgenic Research (ISTR)
will be 
formally established during the meeting. The mission of the Society will
be to 
establish a community of researchers to foster and disseminate knowledge 
pertaining to the genetic engineering of animals and animal modeling.
principal goals of the Society will be to further both basic and applied 
research endeavors, and to promote the interactive exchange of
information and 
ideas in the field. The goals set forth shall be achieved and
through scientific meetings, interactive exchanges, and the publication
scholarly work.

If you will be able to attend our conference, please contact the 
Secretariat with your completed registration form as soon as possible.

We look forward to welcoming you in Beijing for an exciting scientific
cultural experience in October, 1998. 

Cordially yours,
