Dear Collegue,
We would like to inform you that we have just opened the registration for the

                EUROPEAN CONFERENCE
                   ON PROKARYOTIC
                      GENOMES

                 5 - 8 October, 2003
          University of Göttingen/Germany

          (http://www.dechema.de/prokagen)


Genome research on prokaryotic organisms is currently performed in Germany 
within the framework of three competence networks, their centers located in 
Göttingen, Bielefeld and Würzburg. Research in these networks is devoted to 
whole genome sequencing of prokaryotes and also to the development of 
cutting-edge technologies to make use of the sequences for industrial production 
processes, in agriculture and the control of infectious diseases. The competence 
networks are now organizing a European Conference on Prokaryotic Genomes, which 
will be an excellent occasion to review the current stage of prokaryotic genome 
research. You are cordially invited to attend the conference, to listen to 
prominent scientists in this exciting field and to present your work in poster 
sessions. The conference will be held in the central lecture hall building of 
the University of Göttingen.

Topics:
- Genomics of Prokaryotes of Industrial Importance
- Prokaryotic Pathogenomics
- Genomics of Agriculturally Important Prokaryotes
- Bioinformatics of Prokaryotic Genomes
