		Genome Mapping Software Workshop

November 8, 1992, 1:00-6:00 PM
Town & Country Hotel
San Diego, CA

This is an informal workshop preceding the Plant Genome I Conference.  

The objectives of the Workshop are 
(1) to demonstrate and share information on the properties of 
current mapping software, and 
(2) to engage software developers and mappers in discussions of 
the strengths and weaknesses of current approaches and of 
needs for the future as the volume and complexity of genome data 
(3) to consider database components for storing and analyzing 
mapping data, and for generating maps.

Current plans include presentations/demonstrations of MapMaker (S. 
Lincoln), GMendel (S. Knapp, B. Liu), JoinMap (P. Stam), CProp (M. 
Berlyn, S. Letovsky), and graphical genotype software such as 
HyperGene (S. Boutin), and others.  Individuals who may have a 
mapping product they would like to demo are asked to contact 
the organizers so that we might try to arrange for it.
Discussion of needs for the future will follow the presentations.

There is no registration requirement.  Participation is open to all who 
have an interest in advancing the development of mapping software.
