The Genome Project has been wildly successful, generating unprecedented
quantities of new information.  This information is expected to be the
source
book for biomedical science in the 21st century a nd will be of immense
benefit
to medicine.  The major genome and sequence databanks are publicly
available
via the Internet, if only you know where to look. Researchers in all
areas of
biology and me dicine are having to learn how to find and use genomic
data to
enhance their studies.  Librarians can play a role in informing users
and
helping them to use these major new resources.  The majority of the
programme
will be taken by Frank Norman (National Institute for Medical Research)
or
Gary Williams (HGMP Resource Centre).  A follow-up hands-on session is
planned
for May.  To book for the workshop please notify Christine Baker on your
