This is to inform you of a multidisciplinary international conference to
be
held in the Chateau of Blois, in France, this year from June 25 to July
1. The
meeting will bring together researchers from two distinct communities -
astrobiology and genetics - and will focus on various aspects of life of
common
interest to both communities, ranging from genetics and genomics, gene
manipulation and biotechnologies, bioinformatics, to the origins of
life, its
survival and evolution in extreme environments, the possibility of
extraterrestrial life and the search for its existence in the solar
system and
beyond.

Details, including a preliminary programme, registration forms, and an
abstract
submission form for submitted papers may be found on the conference web
site:

           http://wwwusr.obspm.fr/confs/blois2000.html

(note the absence of a . between www and usr in the above address - this
is
correct).


Young researchers who are members of a European Union member state, or
citizens
of Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Israel,as well as researchers of
any age
from Eastern Europe are particularly encouraged to attend, since the
conference
has set aside funds to (partially, and under certain conditions only)
cover
their expenses.   The  details and an application form for financial
support
may be found on our web pages.

The deadline for pre-registration and hotel reservation is April 30,
2000.
