I would like to invite you to the upcoming conferences  
Transgenics and Cloning.: Commercial Opportunities and 
The Second Annual-Mammalian Cloning:  Implications for 
Science and Society, Washington, D.C.   June 24 - 27, 1998. 
This unique opportunity has been structured to allow the 
broadest possible interactions between leaders in the 
fields of transgenics, cloning and germline genetic 
engineering. Participants in these back-to-back events
will explore the tremendous commercial opportunities balanced 
with ethical considerations. The  conference co-chairs are
