              *** LAST CALL FOR REGISTRATION ***

           Registration desk closes on November 30th

           CCP11 and the British Biophysical Society
                       One Day Meeting

              "Getting the Most from your Genome"

                      9th December 1997
                    University of Warwick

  Organized by David Jones (Warwick) and Simon Hubbard (UMIST)

Sponsors: CCP11, The British Biophysical Society, The Wellcome Trust,
          SmithKline Beecham, Pfizer, Oxford Molecular, Silicon Graphics 

This meeting will focus on the latest methods, both computational and
experimental, that are concerned with the storage, investigation and
exploitation of genomic data. Topics to be covered include databases,
sequence analysis (including methods and examples), functional analysis,
protein structure prediction and novel experimental technologies.

The meeting programme is as follows:
